FEE Portugal launched a challenge for the Portuguese Green Key Hotels to take part in the Eco-Schools World Days of Action.
At the annual Eco-Schools Teacher seminar (23-24-25 January) in Janeiro, Portugal, three teachers were awarded with a voucher of 1-2 nights at a Green Key Hotel for the work they have been doing to make their school more sustainable. FEE Portugal launched the idea of a prize to the Green Key hotels, and it was taken up by a large group of hotels wanting, not only to offer that prize, but also willing to take part in the WDA. It was generally very positively accepted, and the hotels will also now be involving guests and staff with the schools activities from 20 - 24 April. The goal of the prize is to keep motivating the teachers that are leading really good projects in schools.
The World Days of Action is a project implemented among Eco-Schools by FEE International, the biggest ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) programme in the world, and it is being highlighted in Portugal through a partnership between schools and hotels, who are joining forces to work towards more and better sustainability and social responsibility.
Stay tuned to see the actions at the next WDA and find out who wins the next couple of nights generously offered by the following hotels: Herdade do Vau, Real Abadia, Hilton, Neya, Melo e Alvim, Tradicampo, Pestana, Porto Novo, Hotel Orca Praia, and Vila Baleira.
