European Schools for a living planet

What is ESFALP?
European Schools For A Living Planet (ESFALP) is an exciting intercultural and international network of teachers and young people from eleven European countries who are taking action in their communities for a more fair and sustainable world and

Participants come from Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine.

The main focus of „European Schools for a Living Planet”, the school environment initiative of WWF and ERSTE Foundation, is on bringing together teachers and pupils, encouraging them to assume responsibility for Europe’s environment and nature and to take joint action to shape the future of Europe in a sustainable way.  

The initiative places emphasis on fostering solidarity between geographic regions and societies, rather than on political borders. Pupils and teachers gather to address three topics, crucial at both local and global level:
•   The Danube, its significance as Europe’s artery, and the
    threats it faces;
•   The „Ecological Footprint” and the many ways in which each of
   us can contribute to the sustainable use of the earth’s r
   esources;
•   „Active Citizenship” – Mobilising and Motivating: How can I
   express and hold my opinion in public and how can I motivate
   others to take action.

In October 2013 teachers and students took part at the ESFALP Academy in Austria  and in June 2014 they met again in Romania where they presented their school projects and where they started to plan activities for the ESFALP River Action Day on 2nd October 2014.
