West Loth­ian Col­lege will take part in an ex­cit­ing in­ter­na­tional project in­volv­ing schools from across Europe.

Project Sus­tain­abil­ity is an Eras­mus + funded project that will bring to­gether schools and col­leges from across Europe to pro­mote aware­ness and en­gage­ment with the pro­tec­tion of the en­vi­ron­ment and the rel­e­vance of sus­tain­abil­ity to our so­ci­ety go­ing for­ward.

Eras­mus+ is the EU Pro­gramme in the fields of ed­u­ca­tion, train­ing, youth and sport for the pe­riod 2014-2021. West Loth­ian Col­lege aims to help close the at­tain­ment gap through its Eras­mus+ projects

Project Sus­tain­abil­ity will en­able learn­ers to share good prac­tice but also to com­pare and bring back the best ideas from schools and fel­low learn­ers across Europe.

West Loth­ian Col­lege will ac­tively con­trib­ute to the work of the project as it seeks to raise youth aware­ness of the is­sues around sus­tain­abil­ity and the im­por­tance of look­ing af­ter the planet for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

Daniel Evans from West Loth­ian Col­lege said: “Sus­tain­abil­ity Em­pow­ered by Young Euro­peans is a bril­liant project for West Loth­ian Col­lege to be in­volved with. Our learn­ers are al­ready in­volved in nu­mer­ous projects and ini­tia­tives to lower the car­bon foot­print and save the planet for the fu­ture. As part of this, project learn­ers at the col­lege aged 16 to 19 in­clud­ing those who at­tend from school will be able to ap­ply to travel to Den­mark, Ger­many, Spain and Greece to see what hap­pens else­where and build their knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence to bring home and share with their peers. The project will pro­duce a full re­port high­light­ing best prac­tice from across Europe and the young peo­ple in­volved will pro­duce plans and rec­om­men­da­tions to be con­sid­ered for im­ple­men­ta­tion by all part­ners.”
