The NATURE project on its second year
In order to achieve the goals of the project, it is important to identify the current situation in natural resource management education, pedagogical, methodological and legal regulation, as well as the effectiveness of stakeholders working in the field of natural resource management, their training needs and other important factors that must be taken into account so that the results of the project and the final product usability would be appropriate for existing needs.
In order to achieve this result, in the previous project period the project partners, led by researchers from the Latvian Cultural College, conducted research on the above-mentioned issues, involving 164 institutions and companies of various levels.
As a result ‘An active, game-based methodological learning framework for capacity building in natural resources management ‘ was created.
In the 2nd period of the project, the research is used in the development of the serious game NATURE which is led by the partner: University of Thessaly (Greece)
