REnewable Sustainable CUltural Enterprise in Europe
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Context of Project As a result of discussions during meetings with our partner schools, it was found that a common theme throughout all our schools was a need to develop opportunities for students to learn and practice skills in the areas of understanding and improving our local environment and creating sustainable enterprise. In a world where environmental concerns are increasingly important, it was felt that students needed opportunities to see how to incorporate sustainable practice into their enterprise. As our previous project focused heavily on industry and enterprise, students have gained a good understanding of this theme and therefore our new project will focus more heavily on themes of sustainability and responsible management of our environment, showing students how these issues can be tackled with enterprise. Objectives of Project To provide opportunities for students to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding that will shape them into responsible, eco-friendly members of society. To provide opportunities for our students to develop entrepreneurial skills To provide young people with the opportunity to travel to other countries to promote tolerance and understanding of their own and other countries cultures. To provide teachers and other professionals with opportunities to work collaboratively, share best practice and improve their knowledge and understanding of employment issues and cultural diversity. To provide parents and the local community with opportunities to become involved in the project. To provide young people with the opportunity to develop their language and communication skills in a practical context.
