The European Commission congratulates Surefoot on its significant project to support teaching and learning about the environment and sustainability.
The project, A Tale of 2 Futures, led and coordinated by Surefoot has been selected as an example of good practice by the European Commission and featured in School Education Gateway, Europe's online platform for school education.
“The European Commission would like to congratulate you on A Tale of Two Futures, which we selected as an example of good practice in this month’s editorial of the School Education Gateway. We were impressed with your project and thought it a good fit for the month’s topic, learning for environmental sustainability.”
A Tale of 2 Futures enables educators to train groups of people and motivate them to adopt sustainable habits in a way that was compatible with their daily lives. A collaboration between Surefoot, Dom Spain and Ziniu Kodas from Lithuania, this Erasmus+ 3-year project focuses on communicating solutions to energy issues and climate change at the local, European and national levels.
As a result, some teachers in Spain included ‘carbon conversations’ in their English lessons, created a food garden in the school, and integrated sustainable activities into their daily work as well as kickstarting environmental education projects.
Surefoot Managing Director, Pamela Candea and Associate, Euri Bartlome Vidal, worked on the project. Pam was delighted to receive this acknowledgement from The European Commission,
"This was our first Erasmus+ project. We learned so much from our partners about Erasmus and other ways of working. We were delighted that both partners enthusiastically jumped into the world of action toward sustainable living and working, learning from the projects we found in our research and going on from there to support the start up of many sustainability projects, including a Fridays for Futures group in Vilnius."
