About Water and Climate Change playfully – endless inspiration for teachers at primary schools

In March, we informed about the work of our colleagues on the Czech portal adam.cz. In today’s world, where the topics of drought and water management are getting more and more burdensome, in many countries there is still a lack of active citizen involvement concerning the issues of water resources. Therefore, a significant change in society’s behaviour is needed and updated and effective education about water management on all levels may contribute to this change. Even though the curricula at primary schools deal with environmental education topics, there is not enough information about water management. This is the reason we’ve created a practical guide for teachers which contains up-to-date information for each student’s level and different kinds of activities contributing to interactive and practical teaching. The guide can be downloaded for free in English, Czech, Slovakian and Hungarian. We’ve managed to extend the educational material Water Agent V 003 via arising project      Wat.Edu (Water Education for Innovative Environmental Learning).

Cooks, confectioners and waiters have been through busy practical weeks!

Three weeks full of non-stop cooking, baking and serving, as well as development of communication skills and teamwork. This, and a lot more, is offered during executive and practical weeks, organized for chosen gastronomy students as part of the project Support to General, Executive and Practical Education of Gastronomy Students (CZ.02.3.61/0.0/0.0/16_012/0000606). Executive and practical weeks are five-day events for 25 students coming from four different schools. The executive week focuses on students’ skill development with regard to practical use (communication, teamwork, employment, etc.). The practical week cultivates the students’ practical skills in gastronomy (professional courses concerning, e.g., work with modern technologies, processing of game meat, fishes and seafood, etc.). Students gain certificates for completing the courses and also a free one-year membership in the Association of Cooks and Confectioners.
