Education: Terra Mission
Education is our most valuable investment. Life Terra has developed in collaboration with education experts different strategies to raise environmental awareness among all ages, with a focus on children and youth.
Life Terra created an interactive environmental education programme for students ages 8-14 based on STEM and the best available science.
Terra Mission is Life Terra’s sustainability educational package developed by Gynzy, one of our project beneficiaries. 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 is available in Dutch, English, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.
What does Terra Mission include?
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). It consists of 8 themes and it can be taken fully or partially, as all themes are independent but interlinked.
Gynzy’s platform, an interactive digital whiteboard (IWB) with information, exercises, video materials and suggested outdoor activities
Teacher guides with learning goals and instructions (worksheets and answer keys included)
A problem-solving approach based on Problem – Solution – Action
All contents fully customisable and revised by experts from the University of Barcelona

Terra Mission was developed with the collaboration of:
"First, my students and I enjoyed the implementation of the lessons. They were intrigued and engaged the whole time. I found all the materials (especially open lesson and videos) and the combination of them of excellent quality and absolutely to the point!"
"Actually as an ICT teacher it is feasible to implement and find activities especially in Grafic animation lessons. Topic is very good educative".
"The simple language used was very child-friendly and aged appropriate. The balance between video and powerpoint was perfect. The videos really enhanced the points made and visually explained the process being discussed. The wide variety of material suited all students' learning style."
