“The SKIM project” (Youth Centre Villa Elba – Finland)

This is a collection of outdoor activities with young people, organised by youth workers and school teachers.

The SKIM project (Swedish-language competence center in environmental education) aimed to start and maintain collaboration between Swedish-language natural schools in Finland and thus establish a network that can offer help, knowledge and materials in Swedish in environmental education. The work was funded by the Swedish Cultural Fund and the City of Karleby as well as Ekorosk and companies in the Karleby region and administered by Youth Centers Villa Elba.

“We who made the material are four natural school teachers from different parts of Sweden, who have collaborated in a project for three years. At our meetings we exchanged ideas and experiences and developed our business. During the course of the project, the idea was raised that we would like to share exercises that we use frequently and that we have experienced to work. We have selected a few exercises that are easy to carry out, that do not require much equipment and preparation and that can be done year-round in your own local environment.” (Borgå, 9.12.2005).
