The project concludes with a Closing Conference in Brussels bringing together national education trade unions and other European stakeholders in education and climate change and environmental policies to present the outcomes of the project and favour the reflection on the project topics. Participants at the Conference have the opportunity to discuss and validate practical guidelines for education trade unions on addressing environmental issues and sustainable environmental development in the education sector. The event serves also as the première for the screening of the film documentary on the educational institutions’ good practices, prepared in the framework of the project
