L’ Association Européenne des Enseignants (A.E.D.E.)– Section Grecque/ European Association of Teachers- Greek section in Partnership with OIKO.POLI.S and supported by the Network for Cultural Sustainability
launches Erasmus+ Key Action 1 Fully Funded Training Courses For Adult Education on Environmental Education.
Environmental education is a process that allows individuals to explore environmental issues, engage in problem solving, and take action to improve the environment. As a result, individuals develop a deeper understanding of environmental issues and have the skills to make informed and responsible decisions.
Yet, it does not advocate a particular viewpoint or course of action. Rather, environmental education teaches individuals how to weigh various sides of an issue through critical thinking and it enhances their own problem-solving and decision-making skills.
The aims of the Training Course are adaptable and compatible to the components of environmental education which are:
- Awareness and sensitivity to the environment and environmental challenges
- Knowledge and understanding of the environment and environmental challenges
- Attitudes of concern for the environment and motivation to improve or maintain environmental quality
- Skills to identify and help resolve environmental challenges
- Participationin activities that lead to the resolution of environmental challenges
