What do we do?
We design and carry out interactive workshops for students with the main aim of raising awareness about the need for adopting a sustainable behaviour
We focus in topics such as climate change, renewable energies, responsible consumption, electric mobility and other sustainability-related topics
Based on the United Nations SDG
Our workshops are based on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, including Clean Energy (#7), Responsible Consumption (#12) and Climate Action (#13)
Different Cultural backgrounds
We have collaborators all around the world, who have raised awareness by means of our workshops in Spain, France, Italy, Germany and Mexico
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.

Solar panels are well known by being installed in our rooftops or in large solar plants. In this blog, it has been also mentioned how floating solar panels have been already installed in some regions. Now, we are going to focus on the photovoltaic energy that could be obtained in a building itself. Even if Read more about How to generate from solar energy in our home without installing PV panels on the roof?[…]
We have all seen some time in the supermarket, in the fruit and vegetable section, some sign in the distance announcing, for example, “Organic Avocado”. Large, to make it are clear. But we get a little closer and we see that for each pair of avocado they offer us a cardboard tray and a plastic Read more about Bio ain’t Sustainable[…]
Back in May of this year we talked about the large amount of plastic that we massively consume without practically giving it any importance. We talk about the need to implement the classic 3Rs: reduce, reuse and recycle. Well, this week we return to this topic, but this time to show you a few everyday Read more about 7 products you didn’t know there was a reusable alternative[…]

In our last post, David has explained what microgrids are and the importance of its development in the upcoming years for providing electricity access to different communities (http://sustainability-by-education.org/?p=874). In this post, we will talk specifically about the case of microgrids in Tanzania, a country that I have been able to visit thanks to the support Read more about The case of microgrids in Tanzania (II / II)[…]
According to the International Energy Agency, there are more than 1.1 billion people who still do not have access to electricity, most of them in rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa and in other regions of the developing world.

Brief Introduction to Solar PV Although solar energy has been, is, and will be the most abundant source of energy on Earth, it was not until 1839 that Alexandre Edmond Becquerel observed that the sunlight striking certain materials generated electric current. That is, he discovered the photovoltaic effect. Forty-four more years were needed to develop Read more about Floating Solar PV: an overview[…]
