"Environmental Education for Sustainability'" was organised as a training course for active young environmentalists in Europe who are interested in becoming environmental educators for sustainability.
As a follow-up we will work on the booklet for environmental educators.
Aims and objectives:
The aim of the TC is to train young people in methods of environmental non-formal education in order to become efficient promoters of sustainability.
Impressions from the participants:
"The TC was a real inspiration for me, as each of the trainer gave a different view of the topic which was easily harmonized with others' views. An intense, colorful, full of new knowledge and lessons experience, with a positive and joyful spirit. Can't wait to see how everything will be reflected at the booklet for environment education for sustainability so that others may have the opportunity to feel the same." Lira Hakani, EDEN Center, ALbania
"One month after the participation on this training course, I can now consistently reafirm my 3 main conclusions/outcomes of this rich experience in Sremski Karlovci - Serbia. First I can say that after sharing a week with a group of so diverse and experienced people, it's clear that "change is on the way towards a sustainable way of living"! Secondly, a word of gratitude to the smooth and eficient work made by the organizational team of this project, for sure another YEE's stamp of quality ;) Thirdly, but not less important, it's very much true that we had a passionate team of trainers, who managed to motivate us with their visions and insights of sustainability and environmental education approaches!" Gil Pereira, OPE, Portugal
The follow-up of this project included the booklet "Environmental education for sustainability".
