RAISE is a European project funded by Erasmus+ programme, aiming at the dissemination of best practices in the field of environmental education. RAISE promotes volunteering for environment, non-formal education for raising youth awareness on environmental issues and it applies a learning methodology organized in work units, developed and tested in the previous INVOLEN project.  

Students and facilitators (in schools and outside the schools) volunteer for a protected area, usually the closest to their town or village, and develop a Location Based Game for mobile devices to be played in the area, based on information and knowledge collected by environmental experts and elders.

The use of technologies and activities in nature attract pupils, and hopefully they will learn more about the habitats and the conservation methodologies in the selected protected area. So, RAISE aims to raise their nature protection sensitiveness and promote the culture of active citizenship.
