About the seminar

How can learning environments support and encourage the natural curiosity and learning in children? And how can the interest for a sustainable world be strengthened? Seminar workshops will focus on the Convention on the Rights of the Child and learning for Sustainable development, but future collaborations can revolve around other themes as well. In the contact seminar you will meet Nordic and Baltic colleagues and share and discuss experiences and challenges. You will get the opportunity to network and discuss future collaborations for a partnership within Nordplus Junior.

Have a concrete project idea
