Opis projekta (v angleščini):
Water circulates through the land just as it does through the human body, transporting, dissolving, replen-ishing nutrients and organic matter, while carrying away waste material. Further in the body, it regulates the activities of fluids, tissues, cells, lymph, blood and glandular secretions.
However, nowadays we are experiencing a very difficult era, and the future looks even worse when referring to both the quality and the quantity of water. Most of the earth’s bases with clean water are rapidly diminishing while everyday demand for water is highly increasing and the negative influence of these two unequal constants is recognized and signalized by also world leaders. The official conference held in Paris in the last years (December 2015 and also in April 2016) related to Climate Change led to serious resolutions and commitments in this aspect. During the conference the leaders emphasized the great connections and negative impact that the rapidly developing climate change has on the ability of nations to attain a sustainable development. Being part of the environment, water is a cross-cutting issue that influence the development of nations from many points of view: state of health, food security supplies, economic development/growth, ecosystem services and world’s biodiversity. The climate conference that took place in Paris had to the aim to encourage people’s/countries/ actors of the civic society in general, to cooperate as well as to take initiatives in order to maintain a healthy environment, with a direct focus on water, climate changes and resilience. From this reason we strongly believe that all the objectives that we set for our partnership are entirely justified in the international context, in which all the partners from the participating countries can share ideas and can mutually instill in students a responsible and sustainable behavior towards the environment.
As providers of education, we, the teachers, cannot be careless about the endangered future that water has, we have to take serious action in preserving water resources for the future generations. We be-lieve that a very influential way to do this and act proactively is by creating the very meaningful education-al project which will work as the program that will educate students for the both the short and long run about its strategic and crucial role in life. In this respect, the purpose of our partnership is to create an integrative and also a multidisciplinary, hands-on, explicit teaching approach that will be achieved and complemented only by the help of all our project partners who will contribute with the skills, experience and expertise they have in different fields of educational areas. The utmost goal that we want to achieve through this partnership is to discover a mutual framework, understanding and professional mastery teaching approach, that will meet the needs that will act in response to the challenges that the issue of sustainable water management raises.
