Since 2005 LVM carries out in Latvia an international forest education programme “Learning about forests” (LEAF) in cooperation with the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).  In the framework of this programme LVM organizes various activities for schools, including different contests and courses. The emphasis is on learning by doing, experiencing natural surroundings and exploring woodlands.

LVM invites schools to discover nature as the best classroom and attend the Mother Nature Masterclass: to feel the Earth beneath the feet, the touch of the Sun, and the water playing on the skin. Hand-in-hand they create a real masterpiece every day, day-by-day, by strengthening the green heart of Latvia – the forests!

Do you know which is the healthiest Olympics in Latvia? It’s LVM Meža olimpiāde - LVM Forest Olympics for teachers and students of 1st – 9th grades. The goal of the "Forest Olympics" is to urge teachers to include in the learning process themes and subjects related to gaining knowledge and experience in the forest and surrounding environment. It takes place in the nature, and the winners participate in an exciting nature expedition abroad. Let’s go to the forest!  

The most diligent Mammadaba masterclass leaders each year participate in an educational camp-courses of further education, but the most active schools are nominated as the Mammadaba embassies for a year.
