"Environmental Sustainability Training for Children through on-line Simulation, Exploration, and Collaboration"

Acceptance of environmentally-friendly practices, such as renewable energy solutions, is still low facing high resistance by local communities. This points to the urgent need for environmental education, especially targeting the next generation.

The stakes are high: modern society cannot afford failure in the environmental education of children. ENVKIDS aims to raise awareness on environmental sustainability and climate change mitigation activities among elementary school youngsters through age-appropriate on-line educational activities.

ENVKIDS does not aim to compete with existing environmental education curricula. Instead, it aims to provide value-adding on-line tools that complement existing practices and promote collaboration among European schools. At the same time the activities will promote children’s’ ICT skills.

 The project runs from December 2009 to November 2011 and is partly funded by the Comenius action of the Life Long Learning programme as project ID 502390-LLP-1-2009-GR-COMENIUS-CMP.

 

In January 2012 the EnvKids tools, and specifically "my home" and "my town", were officially approved by the Greek Ministry of Education for formal use in all Greek primary schools targeting 5th and 6th graders.

This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
