GAP programs in several countries have involved hundreds of teachers and thousands of pupils in classroom and leisure-time programs for sustainable behaviour change. They range from introductory programs – as little as one lesson a week for four weeks – to a full school year, curriculum-linked.
These programs have in common that they tackle topical questions like global warming and CO2 emissions, without neglecting other aspects of sustainable development such as social relations and culture.
They also have in common that they do not require the entire school to be involved; a single teacher can work with her or his pupils, either in class, after school, or at summer camp, and achieve substantial, measurable results.
