Christmas time at last!

Follow our Advent Calendar Christmas time. For some it is the best time of the year. It’s a time full of lights, scents and flavours, thoughts about pleasant little gifts and time together. But the countdown to Christmas is supposed to be also a time of calm and reflection. We, the G2VET team, love both sides of the Christmas season. […]

The lunch challenge in the “Project Development” team of “Stiftung Bildung & Handwerk”

Regional, bio, freshness and flavour meets everyday routine As a team, we work at different locations, but a colleague’s anniversary had been on our calendars for some time and was now to be a surprise lunch. Four team members took on the challenge of organising this lunch so that they could surprise their colleague with something as regional, healthy and […]

The lunch challenge: What’s on my lunch plate?

A closer look over a lunch table with colleagues shows a great variety. Our packed lunches look as different as our tastes are different. They differ in terms of what’s inside, as well as how they are packed and transported. We start to compare and agree: there is a lot of potential here to talk about sustainable aspects of eating: […]

Stop food waste at schools and at home too!

So much energy, water, time, fertilizers, emitting greenhouse gases, workload and simply money is wasted every single day, when we don’t eat our plates empty or we let food to rotten in our fridges. Probably we need constant or at least frequent reminders about food waste. We at vocational schools educate future’s change-makers, who will hopefully live more sustainable way […]

Now, after the thought work, we are facing an exciting phase: […]

Welcome to Kpedu pollinators!

Nature supports the well-being, health and learning of young people and adults. In nature, you have the opportunity to relax, clarify your self-image, calm down and relieve stress symptoms. However, according to research, children’s and young people’s connection to nature in particular has continuously decreased, e.g. with the increase in the use of social media. Increasing the diversity of nature […]

Reflecting on six months of our sustainability journey

To sum up: We have learned a lot and now we are ready to put it into action! The way there was marked by discussions, information, reorientation, reading and learning. Perhaps it was the scale of the issue, the multitude of possibilities for action and the knowledge of the widespread interest in the issue through various channels that made us […]

This is about collaborative learning in G2VET

Today María Altamira from Spain, Ingrid from Austria and Angela from Germany met online to practice working with WordPress together. We have chosen the topic “Editing posts”. It’s about designing our texts, working with images and scheduling posts via the WordPress editor. Without being communication experts, we want to report in our posts about the progress of the project work, […]

SBH first challenge

We like to meet in our kitchen to spend our lunch breaks together, but also to discuss and exchange ideas. We like to drink tea or coffee – and then there’s the washing up. Fortunately, we have a dishwasher. The only thing is that every tab we use is packed away separately. Is there another way? We looked around and […]
