Training School on Education for Environmental Citizenship

Southampton Education School and our Research Centre have hosted successfully the 2nd Training School of the European Network for Environmental Citizenship (ENEC) COST Action (CA16229). The 2-day virtual event was organised and coordinated by MSHE research centre member Dr Andri Christodoulou, who is the coordinator of the Early Career Investigators’ Events Committee and Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) for this COST Action.

ENEC aims to improve the understanding, practice and assessment of environmental citizenship in European societies with aparticular focus on Education for Environmental Citizenship (EEC). Environmental citizenship requires the development, use and understanding of knowledge and skills from several disciplines, which make EEC a multi-disciplinary endeavor. The aims of the 2nd ENEC Training School were:

  • Present approaches to developing environmental citizenship through formal and non-formal education
  • Consider the opportunities and challenges that interdisciplinarity, multidisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity offer for EEC
  • Develop a network of early career researchers focusing on dimensions of Environmental Citizenship and Education for Environmental Citizenship

Participants from 7 institutions across Europe had the opportunity to present their own research as well as engage in workshops led by  Dr Danielle Wilde, Department of Design and Communication, University of Southern Denmark and Professor Marcus Grace, Southampton Education School, University of Southampton.
