This is the case of an on-going cooperation between the National Park Hohe Tauern Carinthia and the Secondary School in the region, fostering environmental learning and responsibility as well as raising the acceptance of the National Park within the community. As an essential also economic factor in the region it is important for the National Park to develop and sustain a good cooperation with the community due to this cooperation it can reach the younger generation. What the school gains from the cooperation with the National Park is a special focus in the curriculum called “Nature – Sport – Fun”. The case study includes multi-stakeholder perspectives of teachers, pupils, inhabitants/parents, rangers, hut keepers.
