European conference "Erasmus + green mobility + green schools", Potsdam (Germany) 4-6 May 2022

All 27 EU member states committed last year to the "Green Deal" to make the EU the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. The new ERASMUS+ programme generation 2021-2027 is an important funding instrument for this. Environmental protection and sustainability are even more in the focus of the new programme.  These topics are already addressed in many exchange projects in the school sector.  Pupils are thus sensitised to the topics of sustainability, climate change and environmental protection and acquire competences for living in a sustainable and resource-saving society and economy.

The European conference "Erasmus + green mobility + green schools" will address the question of how Erasmus+ projects can further promote education for sustainable development in schools.
At the English-speaking conference Erasmus projects on environmental and climate protection will be presented and concepts on environmentally friendly and sustainable exchange will be discussed. In addition, the conference offers a platform for networking among participants and shaping future projects.
