Mobile Campus

Last spring we started our cooperation with the local elementary school of St. Pölten, Otto Glöckel. Helping schools in developing an environmental curriculum through the Mobile Campus 4.0 has become our main focus. The ARK, our learning platform, has a crucial role in developing awareness and stewardship in the communities that we want to strengthen, schools included. In this article we try to explain why schools need the Mobile Campus 4.0. The last activities we facilitated for this project represent a good example of the advantages of outdoor learning and why it needs a digital dimension.

The rejected application is based on obsolete legislation and is a textbook example for an authority which fails to understand causes and effects of climate change.
