Students Form Eco-Parliament

In a collaborative effort six schools from six  different countries in Europe will come together look at how they can protect our common home. Every school has their own Student Eco-Parliament. The SSND School, is Szignum in Hungary. The students are the coordinator of this collaboration.  They have created a constitution for this Parliament and the hope to be able to meet face-to-face five time in the next two years.

The objectives of the project are:

  1.  Increase the number of teachers and students who know what are the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and know how to explain them
  2.  Increase the number of formal and informal activities dedicated to the sustainable development
  3.  Increase community involvement through collaborative projects between the school and the community in the field of sustainable development

Please take time to watch this introductory video to the project.  Eco-Parliament
