PO

primary education

This is the overview page for primary education (PO) where you can find knowledge, online and offline events, news and tools to get started with sustainability in the Po.

More and more people are aware that the 21st century requires a change in the way we treat each other and the earth. How can we build a sustainable society where there is room for the development of everyone's unique talent? And what does this mean for education? How do you develop an awareness of sustainability in children?

More and more teachers and school leaders are working on incorporating learning for sustainable development into their lessons and their learning environment. Learning for Tomorrow offers them a platform to actively learn from each other's experiences.

The Whole School Approach helps schools to start thinking and acting sustainably in the place where the school is currently working: whether this is making the curriculum more sustainable, greening the schoolyard or developing a vision on sustainability that fits in with the school policy. The WSA gives space to work on each part, without losing sight of the coherence.

Projects

Together we are responsible for a large number of projects that contribute to sustainable education. We do this from within our own organizations, but in addition we also work on joint projects. By seeking targeted cooperation, we reach a wider audience and accelerate the transition to sustainable education. View our projects within po.
