Students working together

About the project

Environmental, socio-economical, and technological changes are rapidly transforming and posing new challenges to our societies, calling for the cultivation of new scientific literacies and forms of engagement with science. By facilitating local network across Europe, SEAS provides opportunities for students to collaborate with families and stakeholders from civil society and industry in becoming agents of community well-being.

Through analysis assessment data on the use of tools and resources, SEAS will offer new models of open schooling, scientific literacy and students’ learning processes.

Objectives

1. To develop models, tools and resources at the classroom level, school level and local community level that support collaboration, exploration, and knowledge advancement for community well-being.

2. To create six open schooling networks that support engagement with science for action in real-life complex sustainability challenges, that are relevant for partners of formal, informal and non-formal institutional settings.

Background

SEAS will establish and sustain a continuously updated implementation that is sensitive to both local and global needs through design-based research approaches. SEAS’ Local Assessments focus on collaboration and implementation at the local network level by observation studies conducted within each network to document emerging challenges as well as best practices. Global Assessment focuses on progress with respect to enhancing scientific literacy and interest and different aspects of scientific literacy for transformational action.

Financing

SEAS is a Coordination and Support Action within the European Commision’s H2020 Science With And For Society 2019-2022 program.
