European educational projects


The Environmental Education Area has been working with the European LIFE TERRA project since its launch in 2020. One of its objectives is to plant and monitor 500 million trees and to inspire society to take action against climate change through a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education programme for environmental sustainability. In this sense, the educational programme developed within the project is presented:

Educational Program

  • The educational kit Terra Mission offers interactive and customisable content on 8 sustainability topics (Climate Change, Energy, Circular Economy, Water, Trees, etc.) for students aged 8-14, supervised by experts from the University of Barcelona. With videos, games, practical exercises, outdoor activities and a teaching guide to facilitate its use, it is the best tool for educating in sustainability inside and outside the classroom.
  • Online course for teachers Life Terra MOOC: Teaching Sustainability for Action designed by the European Schoolnet to support educators in the implementation of Terra Mission. They will be able to create their own teaching units and educational materials based on Terra Mission, as well as interact and share experiences with other teachers from Europe and around the world (in English).
  • The Life Terra Guide for a School Plantings explain, step by step, how to organise a planting activity with students. It includes advice on how to find land, select species and plant correctly, among other things. In addition, this guide includes a form so that schools can register their planting on the Life Terra platform and geolocate all the planted trees to give greater visibility to their initiative.
