Sustainable cities; past and present

The project “Sustainable cities: past and present” aims that our students, most of them from a disadvantaged background, know the social and educational value of our European cultural heritage and that together we all look for alternatives for a sustainable present.

Begining in 2020 when designing our project, we have planned activities, both formal and informal, which motivate our students and help them not only get involved, but actually become the real protagonists. These are our schools :
