The project is focused on gathering and providing clear, understandable, concentrated and easily accessible information concerning sustainable consumption, consumer rights and environmental issues. The main purpose of the Project is to develop the quality and innovation in the educational systems for life-long learning by means of educational cooperation and development projects, to strengthen and develop Nordic educational cooperation and contribute to the establishment of a Nordic - Baltic educational area. The purpose of the e- learning is to form general consumers’ perception about virtual learning, to train how to understand and master the knowledge, to analyze and make decisions, and gain practical skills in the abovementioned areas. Our aim is to provide individuals with the knowledge, aptitude and skills necessary to become questioning and informed consumers.

 

The proposed subject area of the project – “Sustainable lifestyle: how much does the knowledge cost?” is adult consumer education in the areas of sustainable consumption, consumer rights and environment protection. In the frames of this project we have created a learning module for life-long learning, which is designated for E-education and will be perceived as a part of a person’s general education. These modules will be supported through the use of IT that will develop the technological skills, sustainable consumption, consumer rights and environment protection issues, knowledge and skills of adult learners needed in order to live in contemporary consumerist society.
