«TREES-To Reinforce European Environment Sustainability»
The Erasmus + KA229 project “TREES-To Reinforce European Environment Sustainability” brings together the countries of Cyprus (coordinating country), Germany, Italy, Bulgaria and Portugal. The activities will take place between the years 2020 and 2022, involving students between 13 and 17 years old, from regular and professional education.
This collaborative partnership aims to:
- understand how it is possible to achieve a balance between science, development and the natural environment;
- develop collaborative and creative activities to strengthen and adopt new sustainable realities and reforest in the face of emerging climate changes that affect everyone;
-develop scientific, digital and programming activities to reinforce technological, robotic, ICT, coding and knowledge skills to find new skills in the digital world;
-improve communication, foreign language skills and social skills associated with a commitment to respect differences and promote inclusion;
- to develop students active citizenship in society and in the world.
