|Project Highlights||WaterExplorer: Since 2014, InEuropa has been running the project Water Explorer with GAP UK, a project targeting schools in 16 countries that is based on the online WaterExplorers platform. Teachers and students are proposed challenges and simple actions to learn how to save water and raise awareness within their communities on water-related issues. The project actively involves almost 194 schools throughout Italy.
FAct! Food Actions: A participatory learning and training package for food-wise households (Erasmus+ KA2 ADULTS) that is aimed at fostering informal self-learning opportunities for adults in relation to sustainable food habits to decrease food waste and environmental footprint of food consumption.
Goals for Good: A research-led programme being offered in the UK, Italy and Hungary addressing young employees (18-30) to take part in two goal-setting courses, which bring together the latest research on motivation, goal-setting, purpose and well-being. At a life stage where young people are starting to make choices that will shape their lives for years to come, the Goals for Good courses will enable them to reflect on what will truly bring them happiness and take steps towards the life they want to lead.
