Inspired by the political process “Environment for Europe”, in 2000 the REC launched a programme on education for sustainable development. This included the creation and implementation of Green Pack, an innovative multimedia educational kit for schoolchildren between the ages of 11 and 15 in Central and Eastern Europe.
In 2001, a pilot version of Green Pack was supported in Poland. Based on the success of this project, and after 13 years of project implementation, the Green Pack has been introduced in 18 countries in Europe and Asia. Since 2001, around 40,000 teachers have been trained to use the Green Pack materials, which have reached over 4 million students, fundamentally changing the way in which the teaching of sustainability is approached.
