Plogging - pick up a new healthy and environmental friendly hobby!

Plogging is a combination of jogging with picking up litter (Swedish:  plocka upp). It started as an organised activity in Sweden around 2016 and spread to other countries in 2018, following increased concern about plastic pollution.
As a workout, it provides variation in body movements by adding bending, squatting and stretching to the main action of running.

All coordinators agreed that we have contributed to the ESD for many year but we need to me more visual about it. That's why we will develop our programmes with straight links to ESD and GCED in the future and share more stories how our school network is working towards the goals.

Feedback from Baltic Sea Summer Camp 2017

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.“ - Margaret Mead.

With this in mind we, Robert-Bosch-Gesamtschule in Hildesheim, Germany, together with the help of UNESCO BSP-Germany, set out to put on an international summer camp that would give students exactly that: the insight, the motivation and the determination to become such citizens in their hometowns and schools.
