It’s fun to study in nature!

More and more lessons in nature every year – it's a fact! In this school year lessons about forest were held outside classrooms by more than 400 teachers of 140 educational institutions from all Latvia.

This is the third year when students themselves can participate in the selection rounds of Forest Olympics. Exactly they will have a chance to compete in the semifinals, and show themselves in the final and win the prize - a nature cognition camp abroad - expedition.

Teachers of the students in semifinals have a task from 20 January to 15 March to compete for the best result in the online game All students of the school, which is represented by a teacher in semifinals, can participate in the game. Registration in the game is via profile authorization, in the first time specifying their school. The best 10 results from each school are counted in the semifinals. The best 10 schools with a teacher and 10 students get to the final of Forest Olympics. 10 more schools will receive a price - the inspirational Pigman's visit to their schools.

The aim of the Forest Olympics is to encourage teachers to include into the general education lessons themes and activities that promote gaining knowledge, experience and skills in a direct contact with forest and nature.  Last year we received 316 lesson descriptions from 109 schools of Latvia.

The Olympics are organised in the framework of environmental education programme "Learning About Forests” of JSC "Latvijas valsts meži”. For more information section "Forest Olympics”.
