Project Summary

Our project is the result of collaboration and previous work from 8 countries to set up a model of strategic partnership for the exchange of best practice among students and teachers focused on the need to work in students the recognition and vital importance to the issues associated with the environmental friendliness as awareness in their care and interaction assessing the effects on it as well as the appropriate and proper use of natural resources found in different countries. In this way, we create a civic culture at European level of respect for the environment with common areas of action.

As for the goals around which has turned the project encompasses different approaches:

1. Establish a network of cooperative work among students and teachers from different countries to enrich through common development proposals related to environmental content.

2. Encourage students and teachers to practice scientific attitudes related to research and demonstration of results where elements such as curiosity, searching and gathering information, asking questions and hypotheses, searching for answers, network teamwork, become essential for dealing with an environment in which scientific and technological components are present elements.

3. Reflect on how each country has shaped its culture and citizenship influence and interaction with nature and natural resources.

4. To develop in students a number of vital skills for their comprehensive training as a European citizen and to act accordingly in different countries with a responsible attitude towards the environment.

5. A level of education has sought to develop students and teaching skills such as science and technology, digital, cultural, linguistic, environmental, learning to learn, all through the methodologies used in different activities such as CLIL, scientific and STEAM method, introducing the Arts subject.

6. Involve and engage all members of the Educational Community in the respective schools so that in many of the activities, their participation has been remarkable.

As I mentioned above, the 8 countries that made up the strategic partnership in the application form was approved, just 7 signed the grant agreement, leaving out Turkey for political reasons, being informed the Spanish National Agency in a timely manner.

The great competence and effectiveness of teamwork between different countries have been conditioned by a number of key elements. One corresponds to the work in a previous Comenius project from four countries that make up our association: Italy, Greece, Croatia, and Poland, incorporating us through the eTwinning platform and common contacts between European teachers.

Secondly, the schools of this project have very strong skills profiles in various skills for the project we have developed. To this experience in previous European projects is added, and the application of methodologies such as CLIL in the respective centers. The methodology has greatly marked the development of much of the activities. Continuing education and educational policy in different centers have allowed us to have formed in the development of the project and jointly implemented educational innovation through the STEAM methodology. If we add that the coordinators of countries such as Croatia, Italy, and Romania were ambassadors etwinning, resulting in an association with a strong competence profile.

Concerning the results and impact achieved, focusing our last transnational meeting TM from 27 to 29 May 2019 in the city of Tecuci (Romania) to the development of an international conference in which each center could explain the results and impact achieved in different schools. The results are platform presentations there were exposed by the different countries. To highlight the methodological change in teaching science subject through CLIL and STEAM part of program documents themselves and in the School Curriculum at the respective centers. Another highlight has been the interest and the motivation of students toward the study of environmental issues as reflected in the various assessments made within the project website:

On the other hand, there has been a campaign to publicize the work done not only locally but also regionally and nationally through the digital press in different countries. Later we delve into the results and impact in more detail.
