WWF Hungary is looking for two education experts

WWF Hungary is looking for two education experts to be temporarily engaged in its Interreg lifelineMDD project as external experts. They are expected to work as a team during the preparation and organization of the trainings.

The project lifelineMDD is a follow up of the coopMDD project that laid a foundation for a living cooperation between Protected Area managers and a Transboundary Management Programme for the planned 5-country Biosphere Reserve Mura-Drava-Danube (TBR MDD).
The goal of the project is to improve connectivity and biodiversity within the MDD river corridor by restoring the natural river dynamics. The results of the project activities will be supported and anchored by the educational component and work on raising local awareness for living rivers.

The educational work package of the project is focused on to ensure continuous awareness of the local population, especially children, young people and other visitors via reaching out to teachers, social workers and guides (as local multipliers) to empower them to develop and implement high quality environmental projects and promote the values and importance of the TBR MDD in local communities of the whole region.

WWF Hungary is looking for two education experts to conduct national trainings for local multipliers. Beforehand, education experts will be provided with a 3-part training (TtT seminars) in TBR MDD countries as well as handbooks and didactic materials to use in the process of national training development.
