    Forest pedagogy is a method that educates and helps to grow at the same time. During the implementation od forest pedagogy the teaching environment changes as the classroom is beeing replaced by the forest. The students experience the forest with all their senses, since they are supposed to be learning experientaly. The main goal of forest pedagogy is to form a connection between man and nature and to promote sustainable knowledge. The theoretical part of the dissertation consists of a general description of forest pedagogy, domestic and foreign examples of use in practics, advice from experts who have already performed the activities in the field of forest pedagogy and its placement in school subject Design and Technology. The method of implementing forest pedagogy in Slovenia is, due to the rules and laws related to forests and education, slightly different than the forest pedagogy in other European countries. The implementation of forest pedagogy can be implemented in the 6. grade of elementary school, because they learn about different materials, one of which is wood. The empirical part of the dissertation in related to the theoretical part. A survey was conducted with teachers who teach the school course Design and Technology. Through a survey we wanted to find out how well the teachers know forest pedagogy and what is their opinion on its implementation. We found out that only a small part of the surveyed teachers are familiar with the term forest pedagogy, since most of them predicted that forest pedagogy means learning about the forest or learning in it, which is only partially correct. In addition, in their opinion, the implementation of forest pedagogy in the classroom is not controversial, which is contrary to the professional description of the term. Most of the teachers pointed out certain problems that they could encounter during the implementation of forest pedagogy. At the same time, a large number of propusitions on the products within the framework of the forest pedagogy and the useful knowledge and skills that students could acquire were presented.
