Agree on the dates for the first classes in the mount (18th and 19th of October of 2012). School director Delia J. Hernando showed her interest in repeating the class in the next years.
Still looking for the best area to develop a sustainable space for an environmental school class in Puebla de Sanabria’s nature.
We already have the availability of the architect Luis Fernández Gutiérrez to help us with its drawing.
Javier has an extensive dedication to environmental initiatives. He is very available to share his knowledge to the school class project.
Inside Mycological school in Ungilde, a special representation (with all real mushrooms species) of the local mountain area.
Josefa Amigo works in livestock long ago. She loves her job. The transhumance is her great passion, an ancestral activity no more practiced by her family. She is willing to participate in a class.
José Fernández Blanco (the Mayor of Puebla de Sanabria) is comitted to support Wochenklausur in what he can, helping already with an office space for our stay in Puebla de Sanabria at Calle Moscabirote nº 5.
Raquel Calvo showed us a community space with a very old chestnut (castanea)
The meetings in the schools – Fray Luis de Granada and Institute Valverde de Lucerna – confirmed that, by creating a space in the mount where students can learn nature specificities with inhabitants that work within it, as co-teachers, is a paramount chance to approximate a bit more young people’s ideas and awareness to their native-land resources and knowledge potentialities.

This building is located close to Sanabria Lake. Inside we can see a pedagogic exhibition with the geological and regional natural species history.
In this meeting with Miguel Angel Corvo (Comarca’s chef of Environmental Agents), after his workday in the mountains, he told us that ecological education is of fundamental priority in young people’s education.
Frequently he does workshops in schools, but never made them directly in the mount/nature with the students. He is very committed to collaborate in an outside class.
