Green Business


Comenius Multilateral Project „GREEN BUSINESS“ originated in the school year 2011/2012. It´s main idea is to promote a sustainable environment. The aims of this project are:
developing students' skills towards the business world,
bringing the business and education worlds closer,
making students aware of the importance of team working,
promoting and developing students' interaction in a European context,
promoting interaction between students and different European companies, and getting information about the attitudes and concerns different European business shows towards the protection of the environment;
making the students learn and realise that a good project should be carried out supported by strategies that have to be profitable and environmentally friendly at the same time. The project also aims at developing cultural knowledge, as well as language skills, making the students aware of the importance of mastering an international language for communication.

Students will work in international teams on these five projects:

Teams are going to create and develop a magazine (which includes articles, photos, short films, reports, interviews …) where they are supposed to get and produce information about the steel industry and local newspapers as good examples of Green Business.

Teams are expected to develop a project to create/implement an ecofriendly public network of transport. They should choose the type of transport (bus, car, bike, …), design the model and produce a prototype.

In this project teams will study the production of food free of chemicals. They should do some work in the lab, analysing food and recording data. They should also carry food tasting.
If possible, students should produce some organic food in the different countries.

The idea of this project is, after finding out about the use of fertilisers and chemicals to grow flowers / plants, to plant a garden in each school without using any fertilisers. Then, the members of the teams study the way flowers/ plants (or others) grow, comparing the results.

Teams are going to develop a project to reuse pieces of clothing they no longer wear - redesign, application of different/new materials, use different colours,…
They will also collect cutlery hotels no longer use to recycle and transform them into food containers for animals. In the end, they will donate these containers to a kennel.
This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
