Living Pyrenees Education network

The Living Pyrenees Education network  was created in 1997 with the aim of bringing together organisations with common goals. With the impulse of the Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux (LPO) of France and from 2003, reinforced by some experiences and the interest in raising awareness of the environment and biodiversity of the Pyrenees, the network was created with the environmental education of the Pyrenees as a central axis to create educational resources and participate in cross-border projects for the enhancement of heritage.

Andorra joined the project in 2013 as a result of its participation in the European cross-border cooperation programmes of Spain, France and Andorra (POCTEFA).

Since its constitution, the Living Pyrenees Education network  has organised annual meetings within the Pyrenean territory to publicise the projects both at the level of entities and organised jointly through the network, in trans-Pyrenean projects.

The main objectives of the network are, among others:

  • To promote, throughout the Pyrenees massif, environmental education and sustainable development actions.
  • To bring together Catalan, Aragonese, Occitan, Navarrese, Basque, French and Andorran organisations to share experiences and resources, carry out training and improve the quality of teaching tools, as well as to jointly create innovative projects for education and heritage promotion.

The Living Pyrenees Education network currently brings together 83 environmental education organisations and professionals from Catalonia, Navarre, Aragon, France, the Basque Country and Andorra.
