Together for a green Europe
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project was founded from the wish of encouraging pupils to engage with the themes of citizenship, democracy and environmental issues in everyday life and European context. The project provides pupils with an opportunity to gain a better understanding of their roles as European citizens and to a greater understanding of their democratic and environmental responsibilities. Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship is a cross curricular focus in all schools involved in this project. The project serves three different levels: International, national and local. International: Understanding how the political agenda and process in the EU institutions affects the european, national and local environment. National: Learn about the political environmental agenda in each of the participating countries, and the potentials of using the environment in a sustainable matter. Local: Focus on what individuals can do in their local community to act in an environmental responsible manner. The outcome of this project will be, that each school involved in the project, develops an environmental strategy for the school. The knowledge the students gain throughout this project is used for evolving the environmental strategy at their own school. This strategy will be shared with the local community by students in many different ways. They will for example host presentations at school, do a campaign in the surrounding area and deliver the strategy to the local politicians at the city council. Getting the local media involved during mobilities and when the strategy is done will also be a part of the project. As teachers our focus will be on Project-based Learning which is a student-centred and meaning-oriented pedagogical method which will ensure that democratic practice are carried out throughout our project.
