This toolkit contains several active learning methods and lessons that can help teachers empower students to be engaged participants in the learning process. The toolkit is developed for Baltic countries by adapting PERL methodology for the needs of this region: active cross-curriculum material that supports experiential learning in relation to responsible and sustainable living that is more engaging, interesting, and meaningful.
2017 - 2019 Jump into Sustainability
„Jump into Sustainable Lifestyle“ (project number 2017-1-LT01-KA201-035252) is Erasmus+ youth KA2 project. Project duration is 21 months (2017 September – 2019 May).
The awareness of the human impact on the environment has increased, and there is a greater focus on personal as well as global consequences of individual lifestyle choices, unfortunately, sustainable development is still not a central topic of educational system in the Baltic states. To solve this problem, The Lithuanian Children and Youth Centre (LCYC) has started this Erasmus+ project „Jump into Sustainable Lifestyle“ with partners from Estonia, Latvia and Norway.
This project‘s aim is to intensively disseminate and adapt innovative practices of education for sustainable development in partnering countries.
The main objectives are:
1. To adapt a methodology, which has been prepared by PERL (Partnership for Education and Research about Responsible Living) from Hamar, Norway to the needs of partnering countries (LT; LV; EE). The methodology will consist of theory, complete lesson plans and activity suggestions.
2. To improve competences of mainstream education teachers by organizing training seminars allowing to share good practices and learn new competences on education for sustainable development.
3. To put into practice the adapted PERL methodology and widely disseminate practices of education for sustainable development in partnering countries.
4. To improve the quality of education for sustainable development in partnering countries.
