What are other folks doing in educating or raising children? International teaching/learning approaches can enrich us all. Please share your examples with us. Our community is an invitation to educators & parents from around the world to share pedagogical ideas, practices & resources here — a place for reflection & inspiration about childhood, parenting, and teaching.

Our first example Idéan, in Umeå municipality in Sweden, is an initiative that offers professional development outreach and educational training. They support preschools, primary schools, and family daycare programs with business development, theoretical and pedagogical coaching based on constructivist philosophy at no cost. They also offer community training and seminars.
The third example is from Naturskolan in Sweden, which provides competency development & resources for staff from pre-K to high school in sustainable development practices. Often through outdoor didactics, focusing on one or more of the nation's Sustainable Global Goals.
Liliana gave a seminar and hands-on workshop at Naturskolan with Ninne Lindgren on supporting ecological learning with children using natural materials.
