Project partners created a toolkit for teachers by adapting PERL methodology to the needs of Baltic countries. This toolkit applies active learning approaches to engage students in direct exploration of sustainability topics.
Active learning methodologies encourage students to question the way they think, the values they hold and the decisions they make in the context of sustainable development.
The ultimate goal is for students to be open to change, to act co-operatively, to think, discuss and draw conclusions about different every day activities in a holistic, critical and creative way for the betterment of all humans.
