The biosphere region Berchtesgadener Land works together with the Bavarian Academy for Nature Conservation and Landscape Management (ANL) and partners from Hungary, Romania and Georgia on the project ELENA (Experiential Learning and Education for Nature Awareness). The technical and educational approaches were already tested in the highly successful Bavarian model project “Tiere live” in practice: On this occasion, living animals are used in teaching and are co-supervised responsibly by students.

The Task of the biosphere region Berchtesgadener Land:
The biosphere region has developed a new module about bees. The teaching material should convey the importance of bees for human and ecosystem, the danger of bees and how we can protect them. Teachers are wanted to perform the bee action in class and evaluate it.
The biosphere region is responsible for the coordination of the ELENA-or Tiere live activities in the district Berchtesgadener Land. Interested schools and teachers can feel free to contact us.
