This course is for teachers who participate in the Interreg Sudoe ClimACT project, but also for all teachers interested in the topics discussed here, whose main objective is to promote and share the key knowledge for the promotion of environmental education for sustainability and low carbon economy.

The course has an innovative and diversified approach to work on environmental education, as this project promotes a set of skills in various areas of sustainability and collaborative work between teachers and students, as well as between other schools in the national and European network.

“To live well within the limits of the Planet is the strong message of sustainability. Empowering citizens to meet the challenges of this ambition requires a strong focus on the traditional dimensions of Environmental Education (EE) in a more systemic approach, but above all, new dimensions based on participation and responsibility for territorial action. It is important to raise awareness among citizens, companies and also public and private entities to improve the efficiency of the use of resources and to promote circular and sharing economies less consuming and wasteful, more environmentally friendly and more focused on the specifics of the territories.”
