ABOUT THE PROJECT
One of the main outcomes of the Rio+20 Conference was the agreement by member States to launch a process to develop a set of Sustainable Development Goals. One of these goals is Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. We decided to launch a new project, relying on these goals.
The main goal of this project is to encourage students to think about how they can contribute to achieving sustainable habits.
The eTwinning project is directed at secondary school students aged 13 – 19 to promote sustainable habits. Based on cooperative work between the schools, they will prepare presentations, google questionnaires, drawings, essays, games, quizzes etc. and finally work will be the common book.
