This project is motivated by Crossing Borders (CB) strong ambition to contribute toward the achievement of the 2030 global agenda, especially with focus on goal #12 – Responsible consumption and production. As 2030 agenda applies to each country in the globe, there is an urgent need to develop fruitful partnerships with and to get contribution by the public, private and civil society sectors. The project motivation also stems from CB strong belief in the crucial role of education as the most suitable space toward the inclusion of young people, parents, educators, schools, and the whole community to contribute to the SDGS Agenda. The project consists of five (5) full day school workshops, in each partner country, starting from September 2020 until April 2021. The workshops will be developed, designed and run by facilitators with various background: students of Global Nutrition and Health, Global Migration Studies, Environmental experts, Eco entrepreneurs, international non formal educators, trainers and teachers.
