Training and learning are part of the natural growth of Ses Milanes. On the one hand, we attach great importance to the ongoing formation of companions, who are updating and renewing knowledge in education in nature. On the other hand, we participate in actions that aim, through experience, to share and disseminate education in nature as a model for change in the educational paradigm.


We have organized and participated in:
