The project “Learning4Greens@Schools” aims to promote and support greenings at schools as an example for interdisciplinary sustainable teaching and applied environmental protection in the learning environment on a European level. The international L4GS team shares a large experience of working with schools on the topics of greening, sustainability and climate including implementing greenings in schools and developing didactic materials. By transferring these experiences and achievements the project’s aim is to develop didactic materials including practical experiments for Green Cool Schools across Europe.
To that aim, it is planned to:
- Develop multilingual digitally accessible teaching and learning material that allows teachers and pupils from secondary level 1 (age 10 to 14 years) to learn more about different dimensions such as soil, greening, climate and microclimate.
- Practical hands-on experiments accompanying the material, will give pupils and teachers the opportunity to design, plant and maintain their own indoor and outdoor school greenings.
- Validate the applicability of the material in workshops and surveys with schools and teachers as partners of the project, with their valuable input and experience
- Propose a multilingual guide to integrate the topics in the curriculum
The teaching and learning material will be available online in various languages such as English, Spanish, German and Basque.
