Since 2005 JSC "Latvia's State Forests" (LVM) invites schools to discover nature as the best classroom and attend various forest education programs: to feel the Earth beneath the feet, the touch of the Sun, and the water playing on the skin. The emphasis is on learning by doing, experiencing natural surroundings and exploring woodlands.
LVM organizes various activities for schools, including different contests and courses for teachers. Starting with the programme for kindergartens “Pigman’s detectives” up to the primary school program "Forest masterclass" and secondary school programme "LVM School of Bioeconomics" – everyone has a chance to learn about forest! And there is a special offer to 6th graders - LVM Forest expedition - programme that hosts every year thousands of pupils!
LVM carries out environmental education in Latvia in cooperation with National Center for Education and European Forest Pedagogics network. More information in Latvian is here: www.lvm.lv/skolam, contacts – Līga Abizāre, LVM Head of Environmental Education, e-mail:
