Ecological literacy offers a participatory, experiential, action oriented and interdisciplinary approach to learning, alternative to the didactic education process. As such it is founded on the integration of emotional, social and ecological intelligences which nourishes active learning through creative thinking, feeling, experimenting and capability building. In other words this education, nourishes the competencies in knowledge and critical thinking; the capacity to apply knowledge and skills to practical application and engagement; and developing curiosity and empathy for the well being of the earth and all living things. Our eco-literacy training courses and seminars encourage participants to understand;

- The global, national and regional agendas on sustainable development and sustainability.
- The various projects and good practices undertaken in İzmir region and across the world for sustainable livings.
