The GIS4Schools Project will have a positive impact on the European school education system by developing a scalable and reusable training package focused on the use of GIS in climate action, which is currently absent or rarely adopted. Direct beneficiaries of the project will be secondary school pupils. Young students will be empowered to develop business ideas using their potential for entrepreneurship contributing to the high growth potential of the Space Economy.
Working with satellite data allows students, with multiple backgrounds and professional goals, to solve real-world issues. The aim of the GIS4Schools Project is threefold: support opportunities for all in acquiring and developing STEAM competences; address innovative practices in a digital era; contribute to environmental and climate goals. Eurisy fulfils a leading role in the communication and dissemination segment of this project, by conveying innovative practices on the basis of space technology to students, teachers, and other enthusiasts of this project.
