The Baltic Care project is about incorporating sustainability into the education in schools in the Baltic Sea region.
Climate change has negative effects on ecosystems, oceans and animal life. Still, not enough is being done to stop this development. According to the Baltic Care project the understanding of climate issues is generally low in the Baltic states. Therefore, the project wants to educate people on climate issues, especially young people. If young people understand these issues better today, they might be able to provide better solutions in the future.
In order to raise awareness about sustainability, the Baltic Care project will work with already established networks of schools in the Baltic Sea region. Five schools from each of the participating countries are chosen as model schools and sustainability is incorporated into their curriculums. The schools will also work on their own projects to become more sustainable. The project also plans visits to other schools, to learn from each other. When the project ends, useful information about sustainable education will be collected from the model schools and made available for all schools in the region.
