Join Terra Mission

An opportunity for teachers across Europe & around the world!

Terra Mission is Life Terra’s sustainability educational package developed by Gynzy, one of our project beneficiaries. This package consists of 8 themes, an introduction and a closure lesson. It can be taken partially, as all themes are independent but interlinked. Using inspiring sources and examples, Terra Mission challenges teachers and students to investigate and learn about the environment, both inside and outside of school. 

Terra Mission can easily be integrated into school curricula. It has increasing difficulty levels: from issues close at hand (in and around the school) to issues looking at the bigger picture (nationwide versus global).

Terra Mission is available in Dutch, English, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

Themes:

  1. Climate change

  2. Energy

  3. Waste

  4. Circular economy

  5. Water

  6. Agriculture

  7. Air

  8. Trees

What does Terra Mission include?

In order to deliver the course into the classroom, Terra Mission includes:

  • Gynzy’s platform: themes on the interactive digital whiteboard (IWB) with information, exercises, and video materials

  • Teacher guides with learning goals and instructions on how to implement each theme

  • Worksheets and answer keys for the assignments provided in each theme 

  • Suggested outdoor activities

  • Extra exercises, films, and games

  • A problem-solving approach based on Problem – Solution – Action

  • All contents fully customisable and revised by experts from the University of Barcelona

  • Terra Mission Diploma for participating schools at the end
