Ieva Zāgmane

I live in the village Jaunpils (Newcastle) in Latvia, and I am working here as a youth worker and leader of a local youth center. My passion is education and different non-formal methods for improving learning environments in formal education. I love my work and especially to create a good impact on younger generations.


To be part of our projects has been one of best and most professional experiences in the field of creative learning so far.

I love the topic of creative learning environments and how we can innovate into existing education systems or create new ones. I see lots of potential in inclusive educational escape rooms and adventures, therefore I am excited to roll my sleeves up and create new educational tools.

I’m what you could call (and please call me! I’m lonely!) an educational freak. I’m very passionate about education, a scout since 6 y/o, a teacher but working as a trainer and educational games designer, I love to organise experiences for people that gives you goosebumps. I live in Alicante (Spain) and I can play any instrument if you leave “us” sometime.

 Everything related to nature has always been my passion! I also was a scout since a little girl, and there I learned lots of values, skills and learnings that I use today in my second passion in life: teaching. I work as an English teacher in a secondary school in Valladolid (Spain) where I teach but also I’m taught by my students every single day! I am also a music enthusiast, I love singing and playing the guitar!

It is me - in the middle!!!! In the middle between projects, theater, non- formal education, partners, friendship, fun and hard work :). I’m in the middle of a local network and activities in Gulbene (Latvia) between schools and youth centers and international project partners. I’m in the middle of my learning, experience, adventures, discoveries and life (i hope :)).

Dani Korai

I am a passionate nature lover and I love to involve nature in training courses and the education of people. I love making nature art and nature photography. I always try to incorporate this in training courses, use the outdoors and nature as a creative learning environment and connect kids, youngsters and youth workers to nature. Next to being a freelance international trainer, I provide trainings for young people doing voluntary service in the Netherlands within Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps programmes. Besides my work as a trainer, I’m working for the Dutch NGO Groen Cement, which promotes ‘green’ children’s day-care and forest schools. Our NGO has developed a certification for day-cares and forest schools bring kids in contact with nature on a daily basis and currently has 100+ locations certified in the Netherlands.
