ENODASE is now finished!

The project is hereby terminated. Many thanks to all our teacher collaborators across the globe! Unfortunately the number of essays received during the project period was not large enough to build the intended database. They have been forwarded to our research collaborators at the UEF in the fields of environmental education and cultural studies, who may utilize them for their content. Perhaps we shall be in touch again under different circumstances. :)

ENODASE carries on

The funding period for this project has now ended, but this does not mean that the project has been concluded: far from it! We still need lots and lots of essays to be included in the database, so please join in and tell other teachers about this great project as well! We can only succeed with your help. Welcome!

ENODASE is ongoing

ENODASE is a project which combines the themes of the ENO Programme to English language research and teaching. It is run and coordinated by PhD Heli Paulasto of the University of Eastern Finland (UEF), Joensuu, in collaboration with ENO director Mika Vanhanen, and it has three major aims:

1) The collection of the ENO database
2) The promotion of environmental sustainability and global education,
3) The strengthening of the potential of ENO in the language classroom.

The research project is funded by the Academy of Finland during September 2012 – August 2015 (project no. 258999). It is carried out in cooperation with UEF researchers in second language acquisition, environmental education and cultural studies.
