"Museums are not just considered as storage rooms or institutions for the preservation of cultural heritage of a country anymore, but rather as dynamic instruments for education in the broad sense of the word ..."
Ulla Keding Olofsson "Museums and Children", published by UNESCO
The educational work can take place:
- Through the various areas of the HNHM:
- With screenings of films, slides etc., with topics relevant to the aims / objectives of the HNHM.
- With special tours or educational programs
- By providing information and clarification from the side of staff
- With a series of events
- Besides HNHM (combined with the interested habitats of the island):
- On-site tours
- With a series of events that will be hosted in different places
- With exhibitions (such as e.g. kits that schools can borrow)
- Through a series of special seminars and workshops, which take place either in the HNHM or in another appropriate place, with themes such as the natural history, the protection of the natural and cultural heritage, etc. For example:
- Bird watching
- Training people involved in hunting
- Staff training
- Environmental education
- Photographing or painting nature (the island’s or in general)
For activities with educational aims, the cooperation with other bodies, institutions or organizations of the island –but not limited to them– with similar purposes, as appropriate, is sought.
