LTT meeting in Denmark

Twelve enthusiastic persons representing 4 European countries meet at EUC Syd in May 2022 in the project Train to Sustain. The topic was sustainability in many relations and contexts.

We need more globes

“Sønderborg Forsyning”,, demonstrated how to handle waste and wastewater and here we learned about involvement of society, citizens, and educational programs from primary school and onwards throughout the whole education system – from ABC to PhD.
High-end engineering in combination with a clear vision is told to the public through events and clever information really made a change and impact in Sønderborg.

We need more globes if we keep consuming as we do now:
The world 1.6 – Denmark 4.2

How to use the stock of a cauliflower

EUC Syd served a four-course lunch and in every dish was delicious food made out of what we usually would have thrown out. Really tasty and healthy food made out of cauliflower stocks and leaves in a pickle, parsley stalks in a mayo, and old bread in a cake, left over fruits from your freezer in a Danish national dish – “rødgrød med fløde”.

It is important to focus on food waste in your daily kitchen but also to teach the students to be innovative and creative using what usually would have been thrown out and make it into delicious food.

We made a live stream of our moment in the kitchen 🙂 You can watch it on Facebook:

We need to act

How to teach sustainability in building and construction was the main subject when Train2Sustain visited the Knowledge Centre bus where materials for building and construction was put on display. 

Lots of inspiration for the teachers and knowledge to be gained for teachers to bring into their education. It is important to educate the teachers for them to educate the students. Those resources were available in the Knowledge Center for Sustainable Craftsmanship together with pedagogical inspiration.

Why is the house round-shaped?

Energy solutions in big scale and new inventions makes new buildings turn from zero-houses to zero+-houses.

Ventilations and heating systems used in a combination extracts every bit of energy and reduces the total use of energy to a minimum and at the same time produces 250,000 KWh per year.

Education and good craftsmanship has to keep up with all these new technology and knowledge.

The twelve enthusiastic persons from Train2Sustain will in the project bring a lot of materials available for the teachers to support them in their education in sustainability and lean economy.

We are looking forward to being welcoming you onboard our website:
