LASTEN MAASEUTU - CHILDREN COUNTRYSIDE - INDEX

Involvement of culture makes children acquainted with other people. It is not only about language, it is how people behave, respecting cultural differences. Through cooperation and friendship we will become more flexible. By knowing each other we will change both, because it is very important to accept others, approve others’ behavior.

On the one hand, small villages have strong social networks; on the other, they are very conservative, doing all the same things for a long period. So, for small school and villages it is important to be out of it, to have contacts. We will share experience, history, art, and learn more about ourselves and about our partners.

In 2014 AREFS has participated in an art program with Russian children at the old school in Vehmaskylä. Through nature and art youngsters were able to discover the characteristics of Finnish landscape and to increase their English language skills.
