What is ESFALP?
European Schools For A Living Planet (ESFALP) is an exciting intercultural and international network of teachers and young people from 11 European countries who are taking action in their communities for a more fair and sustainable world.
Participants come from Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine.
The main focus of „European Schools for a Living Planet”, the school environment initiative of WWF and ERSTE Foundation, is on bringing together teachers and pupils, encouraging them to assume responsibility for Europe’s environment and nature and to take joint action to shape the future of Europe in a sustainable way.
Our kick-off event - the ESFALP Academy
- took place from 27th September to 2nd October 2013 in Illmitz, Nationalpark Neusiedler See - Seewinkel: take a look at our weblog:
The initiative places emphasis on fostering solidarity between geographic regions and societies, rather than on political borders. Pupils and teachers gather to address three topics, crucial at both local and global level:
•The Danube, its significance as Europe’s artery, and the threats it faces;
•The „Ecological Footprint” and the many ways in which each of us can contribute to the sustainable use of the earth’s resources;
•„Active Citizenship” – Mobilising and Motivating: How can I express and hold my opinion in public and how can I motivate others to take action.33 great school projects from last year ESFALP 5: School Projects of ESFALP 5Watch this!
