School for Life

In the workshop, kitchen and nature

Gain insights into beekeeping, stand at the anvil of a blacksmith, work with local types of wood, feed animals on a farm, work together with gardeners and put your hands in the soil, learn about different types of grain in a mill, weave and felt, make juice from fruit and taste it, or take a look behind the scenes at a sustainable hotel. All this and a lot more is offered by businesses participating in the “School for Life – in the Workshop, Kitchen and Nature” program for schools and other groups.

Getting out of the classroom and into practice

Logo Auszeichnung Schule fürs LebenBeekeepers, blacksmith and carpentry workshops, farms, market gardens, hotels and other businesses offer schoolchildren insights into their respective craft or business.

Children and young people learn about materials, processes and basics and become active themselves. They learn what sustainability means in real life, find out whether they themselves are interested in these occupational fields, and gain inspiration for shaping their own lives.

This “School for Life” program was recognized by the United Nations in 2014 as an official project of the UN Decade of ESD.

Target group and costs

The offer is aimed at all schools in the district. Students of all ages can participate. The program is open to other groups on request. The cost is €4 per student for materials.
