In line with education for sustainable development and lifelong learning, questions arise as to how to introduce API pedagogy in their work and how to provide children with knowledge and experience in a playful and enjoyable way. The API pedagogy program - also with the help of bees - optimizes the development of children as a whole, as it has a positive effect on their emotional-motor, psychosocial and cognitive development. 

Participants in the international conference API pedagogy will gain insight into api-pedagogical programs and learn about the way in which local communities demonstrate their responsibility for sustainable development issues.

Eminent academic lecturers and representatives of local communities from Slovenia, Portugal and Poland will honor us with their contributions.
