The Fondazione Cogeme Onlus is a foundation that directly supports and promotes projects to stimulate a culture of sustainability, either in social or environmental contexts. For many years the foundation has been working with the Earth Charter as an instrument for thought and action for sustainability education. This foundation is also an ECI Affiliate and has recently developed a book entitled Towards a planetary Education. For a sustainable Future. The Earth Charter vision inspired the book and was used throughout. This book is a guide for teachers in Italy and contains many suggested activities to be developed in class. The volume will be edited by one of the most important Italian pedagogical publishers (La Scuola Ed.) and includes a preface to encourage teachers’ educational efforts written by Prof. Ervin Laszlo .
On September 4th, Fondazione Cogeme organized a conference for schools to publicize this important resource. The book will be published in October 2012 and is the result of a joint effort by a small but highly motivated group of teachers (all volunteers), coordinated by Carlo Baroncelli and supported by Fondazione Cogeme.
