Summary: During this project there will be innovated a frame for module to educate Green Care- knowledgeable work force within vocational education in the fields of natural resources, social- and healthcare together. As Green Care method is used as a form of care more often than earlier the need for work force, which is familiar with the subject, has increased. Each participant/educational field will write a report from the point of view of their own special field. Good practices are shared between partners. Report includes a framework for study unit/units. Each framed study unit is
developed so that they can also be chosen separately by different study field students to fit them in their personal educational plan. All the reports from different participating fields are collected together and main framework for module is created. Aim is that in the future when Green Care studies are developed further and implemented to different fields of curriculum, students from different fields of study can choose study units to fulfill their knowledge about Green Care.
