We've launched the new strategic partnership "PartESDD – Partnership for Education for sustainable development and Degrowth Education". For two years, we will exchange ideas and experiences with partners in Germany and the Czech Republic to foster education for the socio-ecological transformation in our respective countries. Together we will develop thematic educational materials, also with a focus on intercultural aspects.
PartESDD achieves effects on several levels: It enables the four partner organizations to cooperate intensively as "network of neighbours" and on a long-term basis, which contributes to the strengthening of the European network. Within the thematic area of sustainability and Degrowth, the project supports an intensified exchange of experience and good practice, also between educational actors and activists, with the aim of further qualification, professionalization and networking. It enriches the educational landscape in this area with innovative components through concrete offers, especially in the Czech Republic, where such offers are hardly available.
In particular, the project aims to better address target groups that have hardly been reached so far, especially in rural areas. At the societal level, the Strategic Partnership contributes to effective action for climate justice, environmental protection and social justice in the partner countries and throughout Europe.
The project is primarily aimed at professionals in non-formal education and youth meetings as well as activists in the fields of ESD, Degrowth Education and socio-ecological transformation from Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. They are multipliers who implement educational work as trainers, facilitators, youth education officers and teachers, or are activists for social improvements. The contexts of their commitment are diverse, and some of the activists are themselves still young people
