Education for Sustainable Development
'Discover the world with us'
Education for Sustainable Development enables people to make decisions about their future based on ecological, environmental, economic and social aspects. It involves shaping skills to provide a certain set of values.
Going by the motto 'Discover the world with us', päd-aktiv encourages children to playfully address future-related topics and questions, take personal responsibility and shape their immediate environment in terms of sustainable development.
After all, they are both the key players in our educational facilities as well as creators of a sustainable world
