117 I Sustainability: Preservation of natural and cultural heritage (Koper, Ljubljana - Slovenia)

In today's rapidly changing world, the need for sustainable practices has become crucial. The concepts of sustainability, ecoliteracy, cultural heritage, and the environment are intrinsically interconnected, forming the pillars for a harmonious and prosperous future. As we strive to preserve and protect our planet, it is crucial to understand the interconnectedness between these elements.


Sustainability involves meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It’s a concept that connects past, present and future in the sense that by adopting sustainable practices we encourage people to make choices that minimize harm to the environment. Sustainability and cultural and/or natural heritage share a symbiotic and influential relationship. Preserving cultural heritage helps foster sustainability by promoting a sense of identity, community, and connection to the environment. In turn, sustainable practices help safeguard cultural heritage by ensuring the longevity of resources and ecosystems that are vital to cultural traditions. These are essential to be preserved so that the new generations can profit and not lose their social and historical identities. It is our collective responsibility to ensure that these concepts are integrated into our policies, and educational systems to secure a sustainable and prosperous future. In Slovenia-to mention a few of our visits, the Natural Parks, the Caves, the Salinas but also the Museums and Urban spaces are places of natural and cultural preservation whereas the Reuse Centre in Ljubljana focuses on sustainability through reusing consumer goods.

Trainers will be in contact with the participants in order to solve any questions or doubts and provide advice on accommodation, airports, airlines etc. They will also familiarise participants with the website of the seminars ( which will be used to upload pedagogical material created during the course duration.

Learning objectives

With this course, we aim to reinforce a sense of identity and community while promoting environmentally conscious practices. We want to create a more sustainable and resilient world that respects and preserves our cultural heritage and the environment for generations to come. But we also want the future generations to respect their cultural and natural heritage and realise that these are interrelated and can lead to a more harmonious and thriving world.

Furthermore, we aim to facilitate our participants in their quest for networking and collaborating with other participants and institutions. Following the original objectives of Erasmus+, we take very seriously the exchange of ideas, experiences and methodologies. Thus, our day to day programme, includes theory, discussion, cultural activities and practice.


Our courses are thought in a way that theory and practice combine with our participants´ working experiences. Exchange of practices and methodologies provide a rich environment of examples and ideas that each one can transfer to their own reality and with their own means. The pedagogical material that we offer can be used, open and free under Creative Commons (CC) which is one of the criteria of Erasmus+. We always try to meet all methodologies so our material is always linked to ICT for those who can apply them in their teaching process.

Participants are asked to create a simple activity (teaching or other) and upload in on our working platform. In this way, produced material can be shared among the group and thus, enrich their pedagogical activities obtained.

To ensure optimum enjoyment of the course, we communicate the next day´s briefing and we create a group communication tool in order to avoid changes or unexpected situations. Our goal is to enhance the exprerience and to construct relationships among the participants and our trainers that can lead to future partnerships and collaborations.

Certification details

We take our participants' personal development seriously and consequently, we offer a Certificate of Attendance that is in line with the specifications of Erasmus Quality Standards for Mobilities. The Certificate states the number of hours of the course (30), the place and date of the course and the participant's name. Our participants usually need to produce a simple activity/product which will be uploaded in our working platform. Upon the completion of this task, the participants can receive the certificate.

We also certify and sign the Mobility Agreement, Quality Commitment and Europass Mobility or any other document our participants wish to obtain in order to comply with Erasmus+ and/or their personal development.
