Since 2007, the Stadtwerk Winterthur climate fund has been supporting regional and local projects on the sustainable use of energy and climate protection. This year, two projects will be funded with 20,000 Swiss francs each, informs Winterthur Municipal Utility in a Announcement. Both projects are in the field of education.
On the one hand, Future Perfect can look forward to a grant. The digital teaching programme imparts "knowledge and action skills on sustainability and the circular economy" to young professionals at vocational schools, according to the press release. A revision of the programme is necessary so that Future Perfect can also be used at vocational baccalaureate schools. This and the use of Future Perfect at the vocational baccalaureate school in Winterthur is supported by the climate fund of the municipal utility with 20,000.
On the other hand, the educational programme Climate School of the organisation Myblueplanet will receive 20,000 Swiss francs. They will be used for the revision of a digital tool for swarm financing. The outdated online tool is used by Myblueplanet to collect donations for climate projects of the schools participating in the programme, explains Stadtwerk Winterthur. Now it is to be made "mobile-compatible" and set up for the use of different payment systems.
The Stadtwerk Winterthur climate fund raises its funds through voluntary contributions from the customers of Stadtwerk Winterthur. Currently, almost 3000 donors pay a surcharge of 2 centimes on every kilowatt hour of electricity purchased. hs
Future Perfect is a simple, contemporary and sustainable online teaching tool for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). It implements modern teaching within the framework curricula for the vocational baccalaureate (technology and environment) in a holistic and action-competence-oriented way.
What are sustainable development competencies? And how can action competence-oriented teaching on sustainability topics be designed in concrete terms? In two continuing education courses, SFIVET, in cooperation with Eartheffect, provides answers to these questions - digitally and competence-oriented.
Giulia's environmentally friendly pizza is expensive. Vocational school students are asked to find ways in which the pizzaiola could still be economically successful. The digital teaching tool "Future Perfect" also teaches students to look carefully when companies praise themselves.
