The project was supported by the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe, in the form
of an Annual Work Plan with the following objectives:

 

  • To promote the exchange of best practices and examples among OBESSU member
    organisations in relation to environmental issues and sustainability;
  • To build capacities of school student activists in advocacy and democratic participation, with a
    special focus on addressing environmental challenges, from local and national to European and
    global levels;
  • To develop an ‘Action Kit’ related to the topic for school student activists;
  • To implement local and national awareness raising actions regarding environmental issues

The project is implemented by the Organising Bureau of European School Student Unions (OBESSU),
with the support of Generation Climate Europe (GCE).
Within this framework, OBESSU collected the perspective of school students and apprentices on the
inclusion of Education for Environmental Sustainability (EES) in general secondary education and
vocational education.
