Aims and objectives

To successfully and permanently link environmental education to career contexts. To address future skills’ needs, the focus is on tackling major challenges by properly training the next generation to correspond to major issues such as sustainable development and climate change, and make sound decisions for their future careers.

To create an inventory of the most outstanding educational scenarios connecting the curricula of the participating countries to professions related to sustainable development and environmental protection. These will render students more environment-friendly, active and personally and professionally responsible and make them reflective problem solvers.

To establish a constantly-expanding network of teachers and school communities informed on the necessity of ‘green living and teaching’ and trained in effective use of digital resources in science teaching. This network shall operate in an independent way, with teachers supplying the educational material and ultimately being responsible for the preservation and further enhancement of the inventory.
