On-going and recent Projects supported by EU Erasmus+ Program
2022-2025 – “ECoNNECT”
The “ECoNNECT” project brings together partners from three European countries, France, Belgium and Greece, aims to help strengthening nature education and the professionalization of nature educators, through the creation of an innovative training course, adapted to the environmental, institutional and socio-economic context of partner countries. Nature education forms an integral part of environmental education, however it emphasizes experiences ‘along with’ and ‘within’ the natural environment. It is based on first-hand experience, using multiple and complementary approaches (cognitive, sensory, emotional, etc.), and highlights the need for the respect of natural balances.
2022-2023 – “Green Reporters”
The ‘Green Reporters’ project, supported by the EU Erasmus+ program (‘Small-scale partnerships in youth’ Action, 2021 Call) is addressed to young people, students in fields related to the environmental and social sciences, young workers or unemployed people, aged 18 to 30, based in Italy and in Greece. The project aims to train young participants so that they develop skills and competencies in environmental communication and journalism, while becoming aware of crucial environmental issues of our times and policy responses. Through an active learning process, based on an interdisciplinary approach and a peer-to-peer learning process, participants will be accompanied to start acting as ‘Green Reporters’, by designing and creating by themselves communication material on environment.
2016-2019 – “ETRES”
Polis participated as a partner in the project ‘ETRES’ (‘European Educational & Training Resources for Environment & Sustainability’ – https://etreserasmus.eu), supported by the European Union within the framework of the Erasmus + program. The ‘ETRES’ partners, coming from 4 European countries, created a set of educational material in 4 languages, available for use here from educators and trainers across Europe. The project aimed to provide support for the action of educators accompanying citizens groups involved in action for the ecological transition, through a partnership between four European countries.
