The GreeNΕΤ network aims to address the increasing necessity to develop an integrative approach in environmental sciences. More specifically, collecting ground-breaking initiatives in the area of environmental education and green careers counseling, it shall disseminate and inspire relevant good practices. To this end, a European web of teachers will be formed and specially trained through specific educational actions, contests, and summer schools, to develop the competencies necessary in order to select and adapt and use in class cutting-edge approaches in environmental education. The formed network will take up the results and use them in a way that generates new ideas and innovative solutions, achieving extended awareness-raising on environmental issues.
Ultimately, the objective is to help students to become more active and responsible, both locally and globally.
This way, GreeNET will result in a strong environmental conscience in school communities, leading students to comprehend the significance of protecting the natural environment, as well as the importance of a balanced ecosystem for the orderly operation of human life, thus achieving a major goal of the classroom.
The project aligns with the recommendations of the High Level Group on Science Education (Rocard, 2007) for increased young peoples’ interest in science, thus leading to active participation in initiatives for the protection of the environment, directly linked to various school science subjects and to the future choice of career paths.
