2nd Virtual Training School of the
European Network for Environmental Citizenship (ENEC) Cost Action
“Interdisciplinarity in Education for Environmental Citizenship research: opportunities and challenges”
21-22 September 2021
A. Expressions of interest
The European Network for Environmental Citizenship (ENEC) aims to improve the understanding, practice and assessment of environmental citizenship in European societies with a particular focus on Education for Environmental Citizenship (EEC). Environmental citizenship requires the development, use and understanding of knowledge and skills from several disciplines, which make EEC a multi-disciplinary endeavor. The second ENEC Training School will focus on the interplay of these disciplines, the assumptions that guide the use of interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary approaches to EEC, and the opportunities and challenges of Interdisciplinarity in EEC research. Participants will be expected to attend and participate at the Virtual Training School on both days, and will be given the opportunity to take part in workshops related to the theme of the Training School, present and discuss their work, and network with other ECIs and the trainers.
