How to meet the 2030 targets set by the European Commission in terms of sustainable development?
We applied for this project for several reasons. The need to move things forward in terms of sustainable development. This project will make it possible to produce quantified results of the impacts of our establishments, the comparison with the results of other high schools will be very interesting to see our strengths but also our shortcomings. The fact that the project is supported by the Erasmus program adds the dose of seriousness and solemnity that will allow to help our students to recover the very numerous necessary data from the administrative services. We believe that these objectives require the commitment of as many people as possible in order to be achieved, we want lead by example. We really hope that this will make it possible to launch, in each of our establishments, a real eco-responsible dynamic, and thus enable our establishments to reach some of the objectives for 2030 set by the European Commission in terms of sustainable development. . The desire to share common values with European partners with whom we have forged solid relations. The need to advance our students in foreign languages and to open them up to the world. Some of our students are failing at school, this project ambitious but very motivating will remobilize them.
