Educating Youth/ Children about the Values of Space

obrazovanjem do vrednovanja prostoraDonor of the project "Education to Values of Space" is the Open Society Institute, Representative Office Montenegro. The aim of the project is to educate youth / children about the values of space, its advantages and capabilities for community development. This is an important issue since the public areas in Montenegro generally neglected and often dangerous for users while training on the values of space in Montenegro is insufficient. The project was done in partnership with: elementary school "Savo Ilić" (Kotor), the Office for the Prevention of Drug Addiction (Kotor), Forum MNE (Kotor) and the Institute of Education of Montenegro (Podgorica).

As the last activity of the project “Educating Children about the Values of Space”, we have prepared a “Proposal of activities related to educating children about the values of space and arranging spaces intended for children”. The proposal can be viewed here

skola-savo-ilicOver past few months several workshops have been conducted with pupils in the primary school "National Hero Savo Ilić" in Kotor. The workshops focused on the theme: Educating children about the values of space through the process of schoolyard arrangement. After that, in agreement with the principal, we started with the preparations for the arrangement of a small yard used by first grade pupils. On March 19, 2010, a meeting was held with the teachers (twelve of them) of "Savo Ilić" school,  during which a preliminary solution for the small yard was presented to them and they had a chance to give their comments and suggestions.
