Environmental awareness and protection

The European Commission has recently presented the European Green Deal, which is an ambitious package of measures that should enable Europeans to benefit from sustainable green transition and also represents the new EU growth strategy. Above all, the European Green Deal sets a path for a transition that is just and socially fair. It is designed in a way as to leave no one behind in the great transformation ahead.

To create a more sustainable world and to engage with sustainability-related issues, individuals must become sustainability change-makers (4th Global Report on Adult Learning and Education, UNESCO). For that to happen, citizens need to develop a set of competences to tackle inequalities in participation and fully engage with social dimensions such as environmental protection, climate change and responsible consumption. A vibrant adult learning and education system plays a key role in creating a more sustainable world.

Here at EPALE we strongly believe that adult education can foster and support the promotion of skills that enable active citizenship and people engagement. Indeed, adult education plays a crucial role in fighting against growing inequalities. Visit EPALE regularly, there will always be something new to discover on Environmental awareness and protection! 

Do you know of worthwhile ideas and good practices on responsible consumption and environmental protection? Have you been involved in successful projects with a focus on environmental awareness?

     Ar cieņu pret ēdienu
    Pārtikas ražošana patērē daudz dabas resursu, tāpēc izšķērdīga pārtikas patēriņš ir milzīga ietekme uz dabu un cilvēkiem visā pasaulē. Latvijā, organizācija "Zaļā Brīvība" īsteno projektu "attiecībā uz pārtikas: globālu pieeju pārtikas atkritumu samazināšana; neformālajā izglītībā", izmantojot Eiropas Komisijas attīstības izglītības un izpratnes veidošanas programmas (2020.) (СSO-LA / 2017 / 388-342). Šajā projektā, organizācija uzsver, ka vienkāršākais veids, kā samazināt pārtikas atkritumus, lai izvairītos no pārtikas atkritumiem. Tāpēc mēs kā patērētāji ir liela ietekme, ja mēs iegādāties pārtiku ar mēru, lietot atbildīgi un saglabāt to pareizi.

    Asociácia spotrebiteľských subjektov Slovenska v decembri 2019 predstavila učiteľom v základných a stredných školách  štyridsať vyučovacích hodín, ktoré podporujú rozvoj kľúčových kompetencií v oblasti udržateľnej spotreby. Vyučovacie hodiny sú zverejnené na webovom sídle asociácie http://www.spotrebitelinfo.sk/.                                                                                           Obsahom vyučovacích hodín je reálny svet potrieb a želaní spotrebiteľov, ktorí žijú na čoraz komplikovanejšom trhu výrobkov a služieb a čelia mediálnym výzvam na nekonečnú spotrebu. Aktuálna spoločenská výzva je zakomponovaná v súčasných cieľoch vzdelávania, aby sme žiakov viedli k poznávaniu, uvedomovaniu a formovaniu uvedomelého spotrebiteľského správania.
