Changing (H)earth

Changing (H)earth aims to promote environmental sustainability, cooperation, emotional intelligence and intercultural connections through the development of the first agroforestry in a public school in Portugal by the school community of Gil Vicente Secondary School.

Agroforestry has a number of environmental benefits – water and waste utilization, increased biodiversity and food production – but also emotional and social ones. 


Students, teachers, staff and other educational agents and caregivers meet in this multifunctional space for agricultural activities.

The project also aims to promote pedagogical innovation, so open-air classes are held, articulating the contents of the curricula of various subjects with their practical application in the agroforest.
