For a whole week, four groups representing Spain, Italy, Bulgaria and Sweden have gathered in Lund to work around our project. In addition to social activities aimed at bringing together our students, we have had four activities related to the environmental work: one on energy (clean energy) when we visited the eolian installation in Lillegrund, second largest in the world, between Sweden and Denmark, which produce energy that is sufficient for 60,000 households in Sweden. The second activity was a presentation of the work done in the different schools. The students presented to share their experiences. As the third activity we visited The International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE), University of Lund, founded in 1994. The vision of the IIIEE is to advance strategies for sustainable solutions through cutting edge interdisciplinary research. Professor Håkan Rodhe, specialist in strategies for sustainable consumption and lifestyles presented their activities for the group. The fourth activity was the planning of the continued project work.
This week we will hold our second project meeting in Lund. Young people from Spain, Italy and Bulgaria as well as their teachers meet in Lund to see how far they have come into their work of mapping environmental policy and environmental problems in our respective countries. We have been received by Lund mayor Lennart Prytz and the first working day ended in a log cabin in the Skrylle forest.
Swedish newspaper ”Skånska Dagbladet” Writes about our project today, April 25, 2017
Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.
Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs.
Our Erasmus + activity in Lund is now registered on Earth Day’s website
