Creative Environmental Education / CEE Network: Green Actions

The Creative Environmental Education/ CEE Network:

Innovative creative educational methods for environmental awareness and sustainability The circumpolar wide Creative Environmental Education / CEE Network is an educational platform that engages and empowers primary school pupils (6 – 12 years old) towards environmental consciousness and sustainability through innovative methods. The CEE Network focuses upon the holistic co-designed/collaborative development of the arts (visual arts, dance, and music) and environmental studies towards interdisciplinary curricula / pedagogical teaching methods for elementary/primary school level environmental education. This project is initiated by the Arts Academy, Turku University of Applied Sciences/TUAS, Turku, Finland. Workshops were conducted with eight year old school pupils this past April 2017 at the Green Actions partner Pääskyvuori primary school in Turku, Finland: https://www.tuas.fi/en/articles/213/school-pupils-climate-change-awareness-empowered-through-play-and-art-its-great-see-them-so-inspired/

The CEE Network Includes circumpolar indigenous peoples’ representation as a critically important component in the context of land rights, land based education, local knowledge, cultural/language preservation, and an authentic perspective of climate change that is so radically impacting our lives in the circumpolar region. Partners include universities, schools, and NGOs. The CEE Network and interdisciplinary environmental education is a positive step towards empowering these young people who live in the most environmentally vulnerable areas of the world. The CEE Network is supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers, NORDPLUS Horizontal program.
