A new report by the European Commission showcases findings from the Erasmus+ programme, and explains the outcomes with successful educational approaches towards learning for environmental sustainability.
Report on the Outcomes of Erasmus+ Projects
According to the new study, there have been thousands of Erasmus+ projects with focus on environmental sustainability between 2014 and 2020.
Education and training plays a crucial role in helping people understand and act on environmental sustainability. For this reason, the European Commission supports actions which work towards this goal.
The study report summarises the main findings of 15 case studies over 120 projects judged to be best practices projects. They show how transnational teams come together to explore environmental challenges of common European and global concern. The report also highlights how follow-up activities in local communities have emerged from Erasmus+ projects, inspiring communities with small, bottom-up group actions towards longer-term change.
