    Description of the project

    The project aims to improve the quality of education and training on the theme of sustainable development. In line with EC recommendations, the goal is to provide teachers with methodological support so that they may conceive training courses that transmit to students knowledge and capabilities that allow them to make informed choices, respectful of both society and the environment. The project offers new solutions that not only improve students’ learning capabilities, but also support teacher training and educational interaction processes.
