PROJECT SCONE - The Network for Cooperation towards Sustainable Development in the Southern Baltic

We are pleased to inform you that the project has been approved for implementation under the Interreg South Baltic program […]

SCONE Project Overview

The SCONE project continues the work with schools and youth in the field of ecology, building on the GreenUp project. The main focus is on sustainable development curricula in high schools, pro-ecological activities, working with teachers and students, and strengthening extracurricular education. The project aims to fill this critical gap by developing and implementing innovative educational programs that equip youth with the knowledge and skills needed to take meaningful action in the face of the global climate crisis. By fostering a sense of agency and collective responsibility, we aim to inspire and empower future generations to be leaders in combating climate change.

Project Objectives

The SCONE project focuses on strengthening cooperation in the Southern Baltic region by addressing climate issues among students through cross-border collaboration. It aims to support cooperation, knowledge exchange, and innovation to promote innovative teaching methods and extracurricular activities. These initiatives will enable students to inspire each other and create regional networks to address global climate challenges locally and regionally. Students will enhance their cross-border collaboration skills by working together on sustainable development issues. Their efforts will be showcased at sustainability camps and hackathons, encouraging active participation in tackling climate challenges. The project recognizes the crucial role of schools and teachers in creating meaningful challenges that inspire and offer both learning potential and action opportunities. Teachers will play a key role in facilitating and supporting young people's educational activities while allowing them the freedom to develop their own initiatives.

Project Outcomes

The outcome of the project will be the creation of a network of organizations with enhanced cooperation capacity. These organizations will work together to promote sustainable development using a holistic approach that involves the entire school. High school teachers and teacher training colleges will increase their capacity to collaborate by focusing on education for sustainable development as a teaching practice.
