Education for greener future – the role of school in sparking climate awareness and enthusiasm
Schools play a key role in raising awareness about climate change and climate responsibility. Education can contribute to building a sustainable future and prepare learners to adopt a sustainable lifestyle. Everyone should acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be able to actively protect our planet’s future. This seminar will highlight the role of schools in increasing climate enthusiasm and climate responsibility.
The seminar is arranged by the Finnish Erasmus+ National Agency and the European Green Capital of 2021, Lahti. The European Green Capital Award (EGCA) is a competition for cities, organised by the European Commission. The title is given to one city at a time for one year for merits in pioneering environmental actions, setting an example for other cities and developing innovative solutions to environmental challenges.
