Multiple Centers and Age Groups
Schools, cultural centers, libraries and scouts’ groups have participated in our workshops, with students ranging from 6 to 17 years old
Adaptability and Time Lenght
We try to adapt to the existing curriculum of each institution in order to develop a unique 2-hours workshop, but maintaining a common basis internally designed
Sustainability by Education was created in January 2018 with the main aim of bridging the gap between sustainability and young students.
Having identified the shortcomings of the current educational system when trying to relate enviromental issues with societal and economical consequences, we decided to develop our own educational content, mainly based on 2-hours workshops, where theory explanation is mixed with interactive activities.
By means of these workshops, we want to let students discover the relationship between our society and our environment, and how a more sustainable behavior can help change the world for better.
