Theory Meets Practice

In all study programmes internships and professional experience are core areas apart from focusing on theoretical aspects. All students spend a total of eight weeks in schools to practise teaching and in advisory and adult education within the scope of the agrarian and forestry extension service. In the field of environmental pedagogy a mentoring programme was established. Within this programme more than 50 environmental organisations host the students for their internships.

Preserving – Creating – Developing
It is necessary to preserve our livelihood, cultural heritage and social cohesion. Sustainable production methods, new ways of living and new forms of economic activity are to be developed in
a context of an interconnected, globalised world. The promotion and the development of these necessary skills are at the heart of Green Pedagogy.

Therefore, Green Pedagogy is central to the teaching of sustai nable development in the learning fields of agricultural and environmental education. Green Pedagogy thereby serves as a link between the seemingly ambivalent disciplines of agricultural and environmental pedagogy.


Foundations and Principles

Green Pedagogy creates learning arrangements for a constructiveand solution-oriented processing of economic, ecological and social ‘hot spots’ in the fields of agriculture, lifestyle, consumption and protection of resources for educational and consultative professional practice. ‘Hot spots’ serves as an umbrella term for controversial current issues of ecological, economic and social fields, which challenge students to a debate. These topics are dealt with in example cases and aim at generating concern and curiosity in students by provoking them to formulate questions and to state opinions.

The teaching and learning settings for Green Pedagogy are based on systemic and constructivist insights. In learning arrangements, concrete situations are constructed that ask for a systematic exploration of these ‘hot spots’. Students, thereby, develop the ability to encounter prospective open or conflicting situations successfully due to personally reflected considerations and taking into account multiple perspectives.


Contradiction makes us productive
(J.W. von Goethe)

Green Pedagogy manages to link scientific concepts, practical applications and motifs of individual and collaborative action in agriculture and environmental sectors.

  • learning through participation
  • learning from contradiction
  • learning a differentiated distinction of facts
  • strengthening individuals and clarifying intentions
  • implementing creative ideas into innovative solutions


Systemic Competence and Design Competence

Green Pedagogy aims at providing the necessary tools for future professionals to find sustainable solutions between the poles of protecting and using nature effectively. Students will develop an understanding of these dynamic relations during their studies.

Green Pedagogy focuses on developing students’ skills to act responsibly and autonomously – despite increasing complexity and conflicting needs and objectives.

Green Pedagogy answers questions on:

  • efficiency increase and resource conservation
  • aporiae in the field of nature protection and use of nature
  • food industry and values
  • ability to act in spite of an exceeding ecological footprint
  • rules for joint entrepreneurship on common land
  • entrepreneurship in complex situations
