Project description

Measures against climate change are not being applied as quickly as the urgency of the situation demands. One of the most urgent measures to combat climate change is waste reduction. Preventing products and materials from becoming waste as much as possible and transforming waste that cannot be avoided into a resource are the most important steps towards a greener and more circular economy. It is very important to instill in schoolchildren the idea of reusing waste to produce new things in a creative and attractive way. Upcycling helps develop another series of skills and abilities such as creativity, innovation, collaboration and respect for the environment. We want to support teachers, principals and other educators in their professional development and provide them with the tools and resources they need to understand the possibilities of upcycling for transversal project-based teaching while offering them practical ideas.

Project objectives

Raise students’ awareness about the challenges of the environment and climate change. Carry out innovative practices so that students become agents of change using fewer resources, reducing waste consumption and offsetting carbon emissions. Enhance the sustainability skills of teachers, leaders and staff. Promote interdisciplinary collaboration, innovative learning and the development of creativity. Promote interdisciplinary teaching in culture, environment, business, design and other fields. Strengthen the initiative and entrepreneurial spirit of students. Promote innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship in different areas of education. Broadly disseminate the result and create a network of institutions and interested actors.
