SCHUBZ Romania is an initiative of SCHUBZ Lüneburg and Mioritics Association within the pilot project “Centre for Environmental Education Râșnov/Romania” funded by DBU (Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt). SCHUBZ Center develops and carries out action-oriented projects for pupils with experiential training and methods in the field of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). We aim at changing mentalities of people through ESD and innovative approaches to living harmoniously with nature in Romania. Here pupils of different ages and their families will explore nature and learn to live in a sustainable way.
SCHUBZ Lüneburg is more than 25 years old. It is a competence center for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in Lower Saxony, Germany. In 2015 SCHUBZ offered pedagogical projects for 13,000 children and adolescents from schools, kindergartens and families at 780 events.
