    Plan to Preserve this Pretty Planet

    The project involves 7 European countries with children from 5 to 15. All the institutions in the partnership share the strong belief that all citizens' ability to deal responsibly with their own environment is a key-competence to preserve and promote a good quality of life in a perspective of individual and common well-being. At a transnational level the social changes in action, such as the increase in the use of goods and power, climate change, declining water and energy resources, shrinking biodiversity, threats to food security and health risks bring about the need for the development of a more suitable code of behaviour aiming at the protection of the quality of life both for the present and the generations to be. At the same time it’s important to recognize the historical and artistic peculiarities lying in the place where we live in order to appreciate the knowledge and values embedded in it and to consolidate the feeling of being part of a local community living in a wider world. We are convinced that education has a relevant responsibility in raising significant awareness about the environmental challenges or modern society and consequently we are convinced that the school must analyze its role and define what can be done in order to equip the learners with the adequate knowledge and competences for a sustainable development in the direction of the preservation and renovation of the existing heritage. In this perspective the project will give teachers and learners the opportunity to join their efforts and experiences in order to find effective strategies to help each other make conscious choices aimed at achieving and preserving a world which both they and future generations will deem fit to live and work in.

  • Survey about ESD

    The first task of the project was to establish what participants understood about Environmental Sustainable Development (ESD). It was decided to compile an online questionnaire in each partner’s language. Respondents were parents, teachers and children. It was available in the cloud as a link online for a period of 4 weeks before December 2012. It was designed and piloted by Ovens NS. The results were subsequently collated by Ovens NS and published individually and as a totality.
