PARADIGM is a structured pedagogical, scientific, and educational project. It contributes to the needs identified above through involving citizens directly and especially the young generation and communities, in action plans that would lead to a more sustainable lifestyle and relationship to the environment. The activities are planned in detail in order to meet the needs of:
• contributing to emerging environmental challenges,
