Landscapes Naturally is calling for local schools to get involved with the Erasmus+ PAPPUS Project
In recent months, Felicity Robinson, Founder of Landscapes Naturally has been announced as one of the European partners for the ‘Plants and Play Producing Universal Skills’ (PAPPUS) project.
The PAPPUS Project aims to form strategic partnerships with school education, to ‘disperse seeds of change in the lives of young people, using the natural world, botany and horticulture, in a playful context’.
It will be achieving this through engaging young people in outdoor activities that develop their skills, competencies and unlock their understanding of potential future career paths, through the use of nature, plants and play.
Felicity Robinson has been selected as a European partner, due to her knowledge and years of experience working in education to inspire and engage children and teachers in outdoor learning and play.
Felicity says: “I am excited to be involved in this project to learn from the perspectives of our European partners, and to develop exciting outcomes for young people.”
She is now working to engage and connect with schools across Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, who would be interested in having a role in this project, with access to free resources, training and workshops.
This project is a great opportunity for your school to help your students to access more physically active, creative, fulfilling and playful outdoor learning opportunities whilst engaging with nature more regularly. This can be part of your strategy to reduce obesity and stress-related sickness, enhance motivation and improve peer-relationships.
