In order to promote physical, social, and psychological wellbeing and to revert the trend that sees our planet overexploited, it is urgent to empower youngsters with awareness on environmental challenges and tools to live a sustainable and healthy life, consistently with the approach used by the international community, including the EU.
-To promote the development of a “new” relationship between young people and the environment
-To develop a deep awareness of the environmental challenges that are currently affecting our planet
-To empower students to be active citizens in their community
-To enhance key competences in STEAM areas and in the use of ICTs
-To develop key soft skills such as empathy, multiculturalism, critical thinking, team spirit.
The approach is based on 3 steps:
We all learn: elearning course and practical experiences in the local contexts
Sharing knowledge: students travelling to the other islands and participating in the ad hoc activities
Making a difference: workshops, communication, and active citizenship activities
The approach is innovative because: a) It combines the use of different techniques to enhance learning and critical thinking. b) It is multidisciplinary and science-based. c) students will have the opportunity to share information, opinions and ideas with their peers in other countries, connecting their science learning with their life outside school.
