This is the first post on our blogsite on European playgrounds. We will be collaberating with primary schools from France, Finland, Spain, Belgium and Italy on how the schoolground looks like. We want to show to the children of those different countries that there are differences in how their schoolground looks like. Next to that, we want to use this subject as a starting point on talking about sustainable development. Do the schools use their schoolgrounds for projects on this issue? Do they have a policy on waste? Do they have animals? What kind of nature is there on the schoolground? Can children play in a nice way? Is there art on the schoolground? And how do the teachers use the playground for outdoor education? These are the questions we want to find answers to by communicating with each other and exchanging stories, pictures and movies.
