Grant for Baltic Care Project

life-link grant

Life Link, in collaboration with SSHL, are delighted to announce that the two organisations received a grant  on April 26 for a Baltic Sea Region Project entitled ”The Baltic Care Project” from the Swedish Institute. It is a grant for a project involving organisations and schools in the Baltic countries, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

The aim of The Baltic Care Project is to promote education for sustainability focusing on the Baltic Sea Region.

The projects objectives consist of three areas:

  • teachers at the schools will include sustainable development in their teaching
  • the schools themselves should develop projects to become more sustainable
  • the students should be acquainted with, and start to practice, sustainable lifestyle habits.

The project will be working together with centres for children and young people who have excellent contacts with many schools, and pedagogical faculties at the larger universities in the four countries. This will allow the project to eventually reach out to all upper-secondary schools in the region. The plan is to work closely with four schools in each country and that these will go on to act as twenty model schools.

The project includes workshops for the participants from the schools, visits to the schools, and the production of video documentation of the project in each participating school. Life Link and SSHL-s intention is to develop sustainability practices and competence for education for sustainable development at upper-secondary school levels in the participating schools from the Baltic Sea Region. Project schools will become model schools and present their experience and share their knowledge through videos and meetings to all schools in Sweden, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia.

Members of the Baltic Care Project Proup

The group includes Dr Lars T Johnson (Life Link Chairman), Professor Emeritus Lars Rydén (Life Link board member and senior advisor) and Anna Johansson (teacher at SSHL).
