The Sustainability and Outdoor Education (SEE) project aims to enhance the protection of natural landscapes through education on responsible outdoor behaviour across Europe. This will be achieved through collaboration between outdoor sports professionals and conservation organisations across Europe.
Close to the city centre of Munich, the Schwaneck Castle youth hostel is the idyllic location for the SEE Project’s Learning Symposium. The nature experience centre/ youth education centre is located on the outskirts of Pullach, approximately ten km south from Munich. The old listed walls from the 19th century and the quiet location on the high banks of the Isar give the castle its special charm. The walking and cycling paths begin right behind the castle, some of which lead around a hundred metres down to the sandy bank of the Isar, which has been extensively renovated in recent years.
The symposium is an opportunity to bring together an international audience from both the outdoor sports sector and the environmental protection sector to share ideas, transfer knowledge and work on future collaborations. The program will include ample opportunities to learn and network from one another through various facilitated networking sessions with project partners and experts, interactive activities, and demonstrations of the SEE Educational Toolkit.
From 13th - 15th November 2023, the SEE partnership (Sustainability and Environmental Education in outdoor sports project) is inviting representatives from outdoor sports and nature conservation to network, share ideas and inspiring initiatives to make outdoor sports more sustainable and protect the places we love. If your organisation has been involved in some aspect of innovative sustainable or environmental education practices, then we would love to hear about it and share your ideas with others.
