Discover our environmental education programme for school classes, adults and teachers.


MiNELL (Minett Nature an Ëmwelt LéierLab) is a nature laboratory where we offer an interactive programme of scientific workshops. The focus of the workshops is to protect biodiversity and promote the natural sciences.


In our NaturLab, we work with partners in the field of sustainable education from all over the country. These are schools as well as experts from various scientific fields. We also work with the ‘Fuerschen dobaussen (FUDO)’ project from SCRIPT (Service de Coordination de la Recherche et de l’Innovation pédagogiques et technologiques), the UpFoundation‘s educational landscapes programme, the Nature and Forest Agency (ANF) and the ‘naturmusée’ (MNHN).



Our priorities are:


  • Connecting regional partners from the field of environmental education (“unir”);
  • Communicate the concept of environmental education to educators and the general public and enable them to acquire the necessary skills to actively contribute to the protection of our environment (“former”);
  • Encourage the inhabitants of the biosphere reserve to adopt new relationships and behaviours in relation to our natural heritage through a variety of activities (“infuser”).


MiNELL, in collaboration with the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER), is developing a smartphone app to collect feedback from the workshop participants and to measure the success of the knowledge transfer.
