5. Project description
Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

This project is focusing on research on and evaluation of a school project. A team of teachers at Gunnesboskolan, a secondary school in Lund, started a project on Health and learning by cultivation in August 2012. In school year 2012/13, learners in grade 6-7 were involved in the project. In school year 2013/14, learners in grade 6-8 will be involved.

Pedagogical cultivation on the school ground and window farming might be a useful method on developing young learners understanding in various school subjects, as well as in environmental issues and sustainable development. Lund Nature School is funding the school project and has invited two researchers from Malmö University to evaluate and research the school project on pedagogical cultivation.

The aim of the research project:

To develop our knowledge and understanding on pedagogical cultivation in secondary school education:

* Teachers thoughts, ideas and motivations on transformative education and on the pedagogical questions; Why, What and How

* Changes in young learners attitude to out-door and classroom education

Results from the project will be presented in a report to the City of Lund, research papers and popular articles, as well as regional and international conferences.
