Doukas School participate in the Erasmus+ project ‘Teaching the Future’. The project is seeking to provide access to tools and resources that allow a scientific data-based school education response to climate change education, one that is set in the context of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
The TTF project is promoted by the European Association of Geographers (EUROGEO) as experts in climate science and teaching climate in schools, who have previously worked with all the other project partners. TTF includes two school subject associations who are experts in teaching Mathematics and Geography and in working actively with schools in their own countries and across Europe.
Climate change data and visualisation expertise comes from UNIZAR who worked with EUROGEO and CSC on empowering the active participation of youth to engage with policy makers on Youth policy matters across Europe (http://youthmetre.eu). These partners also have expertise in using Cloud-based technologies in schools situations as members of the School on the Cloud Comenius network (www.schoolonthecloud.net) led by Doukas School.
The partnership integrates three experienced school partners Doukas School, the International School Serbia and Politeknika Txorierri, who have worked on Erasmus projects related to the environment and sustainability in schools. The Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo Danilo Dolci (CSC) has extensive experience in working with schools using innovative pedagogies, with deep knowledge of the project’s target groups. It brings experience from the current policy efforts that Italy is making to integrate climate education as a subject in public school curricula.
