Solo in Nature To get students closer to the natural environment and to help them create links with elements of that environment
Solving Environmental Problems To show students problems on the field and to give them the opportunity to take on an environmental action
Environmental Values Education (continuum) To have students reflect on their behaviours and values To have them hear about values and behaviours of others
Outdoor excursion using our 5 senses (sensorial approach) To have students connect with elements from their natural surroundings. To help them become better observers.
Reading Environmental Stories (about natural elements) To have students appreciate nature
The reading of success stories (stories that tell of environmental successes) To give them the incentive to undertake an action
Urban Sustainability Education (visit and critisize your town in order to transform it) To make students understand the concept of sustainability, develop critical and creative abilities. To give them the chance to do an environmental action.
Participatory Rural Appraisal (different techniques: mapping, seasonal calendar, transect…) To help citizens see their surroundings, to share their opinions about it and to undertake actions

Modeling (the teacher demonstrates environmental actions and values) To be an example and to show students that environmental behaviours can be done
Critical Approach (have students criticize articles or texts on environmental subjects) To help students learn how to analyse the sources of an article, its bias, etc.
The Socioconstructivist Approach To help students build environmental knowledge rather than give it to them
Bioregional Approach (map an area, analyse the uses of it’s resources…) So that students can appreciate their area and it’s characteristics So that they can take charge of the uses of local resources
