GINA (Green INclusive Academy)

Project No. 2023-1-DE02-KA220-ADU-000151789

GINA is a 3o months project co-funded by the European Commission.

The GINA project sets out with a noble aim: to empower individuals with disabilities and staff alike with a deeper understanding of sustainability. Through innovative approaches, it seeks to elevate both groups as partners in fostering environmentally friendly behavior. At its core lies the vision of creating a vibrant and accessible E-Book, designed to captivate readers with its simplicity and interactivity. Divided into six engaging chapters, this E-Book serves not only to educate but to ignite curiosity and inspire action towards green living.

The project unfolds through a series of carefully planned activities. From the production and upload of the E-Book to pivotal meetings in Greece and Lithuania, each step is meticulously designed to maximize impact. The journey includes virtual gatherings for evaluation and reflection, culminating in a grand Multiplier Event where the E-Book is presented to the public.

Ultimately, the GINA project aims not only to disseminate knowledge but also to cultivate a community of informed and motivated individuals committed to sustainability. Its crowning achievement is the creation of an E-Book titled "Make Your Life GREEN" destined to be a beacon of inspiration for all who seek to embrace a greener way of life.
