Teaching Circular Economy to the Future Generations

The ECO-FUTURE project is an Erasmus Plus cooperation partnership set up by Finland, Italy and The Republic of North Macedonia to promote a scheme for teachers to educate children on the circular economy and promote positive society-wide benefits. The training course on sustainability and education is taking place from 30 October to 3 November in Vantaa, Finland.

More than 15 teachers from Finland, Italy and North Macedonia will attend this educational programme. The ECO-FUTURE training course has been crafted to empower educators who engage with students between the ages of 6 and 13, focusing on areas such as the circular economy, the tinkering methodology and the EU green competencies. The primary objective is to provide teachers with the knowledge and resources necessary to inspire the younger generation to embrace sustainability. The project employs non-formal educational techniques to ensure that the learning experience is both captivating and interactive.
