SMILE: Sustainable MobILity in school Education
By the end of this century, climate is expected to change due to the large amounts of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in the atmosphere. The European Green Deal (EGD) wants to tackle the threat of climate change by having no net emissions of GHG by 2050 and the EC aims for Europe to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, but in order for this to occur, there is a need to decrease anthropogenic GHG emissions.
The EC suggests that education and training will help achieve the green transition the EGD is aiming for. Therefore, equipping teachers’ knowledge and skills on using green activities will contribute to achieving environmental sustainability and thus, sustainable mobility.
SMILE aims to build the capacity of teachers to be able to implement activities with students in the field of climate change, sustainable mobility and STEAM education in order to increase awareness on these pressing topics.
