#FutureNow – Schools for Sustainability

How can each and every one of us contribute to changing the world? What innovations, no matter how small, can bring about improvements in our immediate environment? How do people in different regions of Northwest Europe deal with the issue of "sustainability"? What are the similarities and differences? And, what can we learn from the example of others and adopt for our everyday lives? These are precisely the questions addressed by the project #FutureNow - Schools for Sustainability in 2021-2022.

"It's not your fault that the world is the way it is. It would only be your fault if it stayed that way."

The #FutureNow project was guided by these 17 goals and invited schools, teachers and German learners in the region of Northwest Europe and Germany in 2021-2022 to join the project. All schools engaged with the topic of "sustainability" and exchanged their approaches and ideas for a sustainable everyday school life with other participating schools and project partners.
