Manual will help you to improve sustainability of your Erasmus+ projects. It offers you tips on the activities, logistics, accommodation, methodologies and foods. The manual was created by the participants of a project: Think global, act local.

Aims of the tool

To provide organizers simple and easy applicable recommendations on different specters of the Erasmus+ projects in order to make them more sustainable.
By using the manual the projects should increase their positive impact on the environment and decrease the negative one.

Description of the tool

What is the ecological footprint of an exchange? How much resources are we consuming? How can we provide a sustainable project? How can we promote a healthy and active lifestyle?

Health, sustainability and environment, if taken in account in a holistic way, comprise a diversity of areas and concepts that are not clear to a lot of people and that also reflect cultural differences and habits. By creating a space of discussion and sharing we enable people to discover more deeply some of the current issues regarding environment and health that affect their lives and to create solutions that can be implemented in our daily lives and on the projects we are running. We hope that this manual will help you to find the possible answers to the questions written before. We do not pretend to be exhaustive, neither fully complete, but to give useful hints to the ones who approach for the first times to this kind of programme.
