    Green European Eco Project

    9 schools from 9 countries had found each other being concerned about the future of the Earth and agreed on doing their best to make a change. We have worked out a project that focuses on environmental education and management. Our aim was to raise students' awareness of environmental issues through classroom study as well as school and community actions. In exchange with students from other European countries students learned about foreign landscapes, environmental problems there, but also environmental protection measures. The project involved a wide range of participants, teachers, staff, local community; but students played the central role. One of the aims of the GEEP project was to encourage creative thinking of students and teachers. The project wanted all participants, students, teachers and the school to be able to identify the key components of the green environment in the present and the future. Our aim was also to enable pupils to feel part of a wider European community to increase their motivation and capacity for learning. They learned to be more open-minded with different people, and they’ll understood their own and their families involvement within a bigger European community. They learned that every decision is important and everyone's influence on environment is vital. The progress of the project was reflected on the active website. A Green Calendar was made by the partners. Each partner was able to focus on a specific environmental topic and present his results to all partners, this while reflecting it to and comparing it with the situation in the partner-countries. In the last year there was a final exhibition. During the project we had meetings, in-school environmental project-work, lesson-plans on a European level.

  • Don't forget to be green - Calendar

    This calendar shows art pieces from every partnerschool. The artpieces should match to slogans from the environmental protection. It was important for us to create an everlasting calendar that can be used not just one year. The calendar points out the complexity of the subject that is also reflected by all the different techniques.
