Paving ESD through School-Community Action Programs: Experiences, findings and perspectives
The above was a nationwide project implemented in pre-primary and primary schools in Cyprus for three years aiming to use local community as a means for promoting ESD, by jointly planning and implementing action community programs amongst various key players (parents, local populations, teachers, students, professionals, managers). The procedures for the ESD programs development, the involvement of the main actors, the experiences, the insights and reflections of the participants, the use of local community as a place of learning, as well as the benefits of the project for community and school in the framework of ESD are presented and discussed.
