My project tries to change the perception on consumerism in young students, as it often has a detrimental effect on nature, on human relationships, on human lives in general. Once they realise that excessive consumption of textiles does a lot of damage to them and to the environment, they will try to make intelligent choices in terms of purchases and try to improve the quality of the environment they live in.
If you implemented this plan in your own classroom, please share your findings and suggestions by taking this short survey.
The project goal is to have a zero-waste classroom environment while developing a good understanding of the climate change dynamic.
This project aims at developing a new approach to the problem, alert people and specifically the young ones to what is happening to the environment around us and to our planet. It will lead pupils to think and act green now, because tomorrow will be too late. It will make students aware of the fact that our planet needs every one of us and we can save it TOGETHER.

This project is a set of activities where students go explore videos and texts related to the theme of the environment and climate change. They will also develop slogans, posters, a presentation and a Padlet. Plogging is a sustainability activity where students will walk and pick up some recyclable garbage and also explore the location of the walk on Google Earth, using compasses and topographic maps. Students will also build some musical instruments using recyclable materials, and in the end they do a questionnaire in Kahoot and Menti.
In this project, students have explored the most advanced practices in architecture and urban sustainability in order to cooperate to craft an environmentally friendly town aware of future generations’ quality of life.
Analysing the problem of non-selective collection of waste in our center aims to awaken in students the need to take actions and try to achieve a more pleasant environment, in which the way of acting of the entire school community is sustainable and fair to our planet. Students will have to come up with real solutions and carry them out to manage the different types of garbage we produce every day.
In this project, students will explore the process of forest destruction. This process began 10 years ago when local companies started cutting down trees and exporting to Italy. The land in our village (the part where the forest was located) was left without plants and trees. Students will compare the appearance of the environment before and after deforestation, discuss the social consequences, and propose their economic forest management plan.
Students will learn what climate change is and what is our role and impact in it. In teams, students will create information leaflets about climate change. Students will include their parents and other family members by calculating a carbon footprint with them. We will analyse the results in the classroom and make a plan how to reduce the carbon footprint - how to reduce water, electricity and fuel consumption in the household. More activities in the plan.
Many teachers and students have their lunches at the school canteen every day, while many others go to the school cafeteria. In order to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions with the waste, this project aims at managing waste with compost bins, whose contents would later be used in the school grounds in farming patches. Simultaneously, water storage containers would be strategically placed around the school premises to collect and store rainwater to be later used in our micro farming, thus saving on the water consumption and on the bill. Whatever products harvested there could then be either used by the school itself – in the canteen, cafeteria or food bank - or sold in a monthly market to provide some income for new crops and other needed investments.

The La Noguera Seeds Shelter Project is a school net project related to the Green Schools Project (from the Catalan Government) involving all primary and secondary schools (48 schools) of La Noguera (Lleida, Catalunya, SP). We grow vegetables in our playgrounds, organise plogging days in our towns and share experiences, seeds, workshops related to sustainability, climate change, environment protection, biodiversity, 3Rs... and we celebrate the World Environment Day all together.

This project will lead students to work together in teams by exchanging ideas on the different challenges they will have to face up to the future. The collaborative process throughout the project will require students to work in teams, exchange points of view, negotiate, reach agreements, and make decisions together in a respectful and democratic way.

Our secondary school shares projects with Portuguese school centres. Therefore, I propose a collaborative project between the two territories, in which the Spanish-Portuguese students carry out joint activities around the protection of forests and actions during the fire and reforestation of the lands affected by the fire.
Our city is located close to the Carpathian Mountains. Students from grades 8 to 12 will hike to a nearby forested peak, select representative trees, collect location data, and then research the ecological benefits of these trees. They will set up a phone data collection app and they will build a website where the community will find detailed scientific information about the environmental impact of local trees. Once the project is over, anyone hiking in the area will be able to add tree location data to the website.
At a first stage, the project implies creating a SCHOOL GARDEN where the students grow vegetables and local aromatic herbs (to sell to parents and the school and local community). It also implies as a final product the creation of a COOKBOOK with many healthy and sustainable recipes, which will be applied in the menu of the school canteen, and the organisation of an ANNUAL FAIR OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP, where all the work, products and wonderful recipes will be sold and the profit gained will be shared by the classes for the purchase of educational materials and organising a study tour under the interest/topic of the global climate crisis.
