Growing evidence shows that Nature-based Solutions (NBS) can play a pivotal role in addressing the twin climate and biodiversity crises by delivering ecological, economic and social benefits. Environmentally literate citizens can greatly contribute to building a more sustainable society. Investing in learning about environmental sustainability means shaping a greener and fairer future for all.
An EU-funded pilot initiative is proposing NBS learning pathways across schools in Europe, involving hundreds of teachers and thousands of students.
This hybrid event celebrates this initiative and provides a forum to share ideas and best-practices for the inclusion of interdisciplinary education for sustainability in school curricula. It will also be the occasion to celebrate the winners of the first competition awarding teachers for their outstanding work on ‘Nature-based Solutions in Education’.
