The schools and their partners from the non formal sector that have fully implemented the criteria of the Alpine School Model have been rewarded with the Alpine School certification. The first certifications were conferred in occasion of the final conference of the YOUrALPS project, October 2019. Eight schools and their partners were officially recognised as Alpine Schools and Alpine School partners. From that moment on the certification pocess has been taken in charge of by national institutions with international coordination by Alparc.
The role of pilot sites in the development of the Alpine School Model
Every pilot site is made up of a school and a protected area. The pilot sites will design, implement and evaluate innovative approaches in the framework of the draft Alpine School Model.Through pilot actions, Mountain Oriented Education (MOE) approaches and contents will be analysed and then integrated in the ASM in order to validate a curriculum.
The 10-month implementation period will be followed by a six-month evaluation that will be performed by youth, teachers and experts together.
