Pp. 84-95 (12)
Ana V. Korže and Mojca K. Krajnc
This chapter deals with learning environments in Slovenia, enabling many
schools to practice experiential education for sustainable development. In recent years,
municipalities and various organizations have established around Slovenia different
settings for it that need to be connected. Schools need to enhance experiential education
and increase the usefulness of the gained knowledge in practice. New challenges in
education are emphasized by the European Commission, which encourages Member States
to responsibly carry out the educational process. The emphasis is on broad capabilities that
open the door to different activities. More attention should be paid to the intergenerational
cooperation, which is a good addition to the practice education and responsibility.
