Back to school for green future

60 eco-managers go to schools at their local communities to tell not only about the air quality, causes of pollution and how to fight with them, but also about their experiences as an Eco-manager within the international project co-financed by the EU. Meetings with young people aim to raise their awareness of environment and impact of EU funds on local communities. An investment in young people has a chance to build a new generation for which clean energy and green cities become a reality.

From May 21 to May 25, 2018, 60 eco-managers implementing the LIFE project entitled: "Implementation of air quality plan for Malopolska Region - Malopolska in a healthy atmosphere" LIFE IP MALOPOLSKA / LIFE14/IPE/PL/021 will go to schools at their local communities, to tell not only about the air quality in the local area, the causes of pollution and how to fight with them, but also about their experiences in the work as an Eco-manager within the international project co-financed by the European Union, problems they face and successes that drive them to further work, their personal motivation and why they have decided to work for environmental protection. Every Eco-manager should conduct one lesson in primary or secondary school. The Malopolska Region, on the occasion of Green Week 2018 ,will prepare an information bulletin of the LIFE project, which will be sent to all municipalities in Poland, to promote good practices, experiences and results of the LIFE IP MALOPOLSKA project, in particular the idea of employing Eco-managers by the local self-governments. Meetings with young people aim to raise their ecological awareness and awareness of the role, function and impact of European funds on local communities. An investment in young people, in their knowledge, awareness, emotion has a chance to build a new generation for which clean energy and green cities will become not a goal but the reality that surrounds them. On the project website and in social media (Facebook), you can find a schedule of organized activities for each of the 55 project partners.
