On April 25 and 26, 2024, we participated in the fifth multinational project meeting at our partners Raabe in Sofia, Bulgaria. After the project dinner, we continued with the project meeting. The goal of the meeting was to complete the Materials for Students – their translation into 4 language versions, the creation of the final version of the Questionnaire for students, the completion of the Methodological Manual for Teachers and the development of a Course for Teachers Education. Our partners from Sofia were excellent hosts, again we managed to do a lot of creative work and at the same time, there was a cheerful atmosphere. 

What have we already managed to do in the project?

We have completed almost a year and a half in the project and the first output of the project – Material for Students on the topic of sustainability, environmental education and healthy nutrition is almost finished. All 10 lessons from each concept are in the pre-final version, followed by the addition of details and piloting at our partner schools. We agreed on how to complete the Methodological Manual for Teachers, how to verify the topic of sustainability with the students in the project with a Questionnaire. We continue to work on the development of an Educational Course for Teachers.

The Excursion at specialized STEM centre in 68 SU “Acad. Nikola Obreshkov” was a highlight.

On April 25 and 26, 2024, the fifth international meeting of the Innovative STEPS (Innovative SusTainability Education for Prosperous Schools) project was held in Sofia.

Within the framework of the meeting, the participants visited 68 SU “Acad. Nikola Obreshkov”, Sofia – one of the project partners in Bulgaria. The project team was kindly welcomed by the director of the school Mrs. Rumyana Partsova, as well as by teachers and students of the school.

Together with our partners from Slovakia and the Czech Republic, we had the opportunity to observe activities and presentations of students, in which they showed us their knowledge and ideas about healthy eating, a more efficient lifestyle without waste, and we realized that even among the youngest it is fashionable to be eco. The enthusiasm and motivation of the fifth, sixth and seventh graders blew us away. We took a closer look at the school’s wonderful STEM centre.

At the end, the talented students from the stained glass club delighted us with a surprise gift for each participant in the meeting. We boldly stand behind the phrase: “The future is your classroom today.”


What awaits us in the near future.

In the near future, we plan to publish the first results from all project outputs (after translation into four languages) on the project’s online platform. We will continue to modify the platform so that it is useful and fun for all users after the end of the project.

Seeing ready-made colourful activities for students is a great feeling, keep your fingers crossed! 🙂
