In published a Report presenting the results of the Erasmus+ projects implemented between 2014 and 2020, focused on the theme of education for environmental sustainability. Out of a list of 120 projects identified as “good practice” in the Erasmus+ database, 15 projects were selected for a thorough study. The report summarises the main findings of the 15 case studies, with a view to identifying and demonstrating successful approaches and supporting EU policy development in this area. Under case study 5, the Leaf by Leaf project is described. The authors note: “Interviewed board members of the coordinating NGO as well as volunteers highlighted how much their environmental awareness and behaviour had changed and developed due to their participation in the Leaf by Leaf project activities, which they thought had a long-term effect on their lives. Another aspect of lifelong learning is spreading environmental education and sustainable behaviour within the partner organisations of the Public Environmental Centre for Sustainable Development, as well as within the local municipality and beyond.The report can be read online here .
