ILCES – Intergenerational Learning Communities towards Environmental Sustainability

Updated: 7 days ago

Idea behind the project

The European Green Deal set an ambitious goal of making EU member states climate neutral by 2050. The achievement of this goal requires joint efforts of all actors – from governments and enterprises to training institutions and local community members of all ages.

To lead an environmentally friendly lifestyle, citizens should have clear understanding of its impact on their own lives and possess relevant skills and competences. In this sense, adult learning centres (not only training institutions, but also NGOs, libraries, museums etc.) may become “green” advocates by promoting sustainability and environmental awareness among young adults and seniors.

The Aim of the Project

The ILCES Project is a two and a half year Erasmus plus project that to strengthen intergenerational learning within community to promote environmental awareness and change of behaviour towards environmental sustainability through 6 R’s of sustainability.

We aim to produce a Handbook, guidelines and an e-learning platform, to enable learning communities to promote inter generational learning through environmental sustainability.
