ENSITE (2019-2022) is an Erasmus+ project supporting the development of future science and maths teachers’ environmental citizenship and related teaching competences.
We face severe global environmental challenges such as climate change, plastic waste and loss of biodiversity. To develop sustainable solutions for these challenges, people need skills to deal with them. We need not only profound scientific know-how, but also transversal skills such as critical thinking, creativity, responsible citizenship competences and a forward-perspective.
ENSITE supports this endeavour. Researchers from 11 European countries work closely together to develop an innovative approach which aims at improving higher education by including environmental socio-scientific issues in science initial teacher education.
