New and renewed learning environments in Iceland

One of the main outcomes of the NEED project is inspiring environments for Geo-Education, environmental education and edu-tourism.  In Iceland the pilot learning environments are 20 altogether. Eight of them focus on kindergarten and elementary school students, five focus on upper secondary school students and two focus on tourists. Three educational footpaths have also been made and two informative maps. All of the 20 projects take place within Vatnajökull national park or in the municipalities connected to the park.
