AELIA – Applying a multi-stakeholder and whole-institutional approach to education for sustainability

Project Number: 101087425

The aim of AELIA is to contribute to equipping all citizens with the skills and competences for the green transition. To do this, the project will put in action a multistakeholder, whole-institutional approach, bringing together actors from formal and non-formal education settings, businesses, civil society, and the public sector who will participate in all stages of the project following a quadruple helix innovation approach to develop an enabling learning ecosystem to bring change at an institutional, individual and societal level.

Addressing the institutional axis: Capacity building of education leaders and authorities on implementing and monitoring sustainability plans

Addressing the societal axis: Crowdsourcing platform and webinars for citizens
-educators, civil society organisations, and citizens can use the crowdsourcing platform to share knowledge, and ideas and re-imagine their communities at local, national, and European levels. At the same time, 4 webinars will be developed for Greece, Cyprus, Serbia, and Romania to entice the interest of citizens, raise awareness and educate them on sustainable development.
