The OPEDUCA Project is an ongoing mission, resulting from the dedication of Teachers, Students, Parents and all with a true heart for Education for Sustainable Development. It has not been created, like so many other initiatives, to be an innovation in education as such, nor has it a commercial goal..
But a game-changing innovation it certainly is
The OPEDUCA Project's goal is to contribute to a more sustainable society through enhancing, empowering and celebrating youngsters' learning.
Because Schools are key, both in time spend and impact, OPEDUCA became a full-scale transition -concept for schools in the whole range from Primary- up to and including Higher Education.
The OPEDUCA concept is old,
it was there before the modernisations, 'innovations' and 'goeroes' that presently swarm education and schools, often copy-pasting each other and mostly out for status, esteem and financial gain. Over the years The OPEDUCA Project gained qualities as a well-informed and effective 'protection'-mechanism for schools against the abuse of education at large and to enable them to believe in their own strengths again.
Being initiated by ordinary people in daily life, not emerging from one specific sector or interest group, The OPEDUCA Project is not conventional in that it doesn't come from nor does it follow official and more traditional channels of innovation and educational development.
The initiative has been granted support from a range of Ministries, Cities, Provinces and the European Union, as well as from industry and private sources, but always as an independent movement.
