“Europeans rank climate change among the most serious problems facing the world today. Education and training, like all sectors, must take action to respond to this planetary crisis. Learners of all ages need opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to live more sustainably, embrace healthier lifestyles and contribute – both individually and collectively – to the green transition.” (EU Green Education website)
In this context we propose today a new course to all European educators. In this fascinating five days course the essential knowledge about the environment, the skills for a sustainable living and the attitudes towards participative solutions are the heart of the everyday activities.
The course combines theory with practice and focuses on a modern approach where many school subjects have a role to play. We can actually say that this is a high impact course which will help you change the way you work at school.
Welcome to a valuable course like no other!
