Project Aims

The Project of Environmental Education programme aims to support students in acquiring and developing key skills that will have a fundamental impact on their ability to establish correct relations with the environment and better understand the problems and possible solutions. This will also increase their awareness and ability to dialogue with the environment as responsible citizens.
The programme sets out to explore a series of critical topics and provide practical and effective educational tools with a strong focus on caring for the environment and sustainable growth.

Background

In today’s society, the environment is influenced more than ever by human activities. Therefore, our relationship with the environment should be one of the issues to which humanity should pay more attention to. On the one hand, pollution, waste and other environmental problems caused by human activity are increasing every day, on the other hand, the availability of information is growing, making it difficult for young people to understand and be aware of existing threats and opportunities.

Promoting the acquisition of environmental competences and skills is, therefore, more and more a primary objective of schools.

The development of an Environmental Education programme aims to support students in acquiring and developing key skills that will have a fundamental impact on their ability to establish correct relations with the environment and better understand the problems and possible solutions.
