GROW! is now part of the "Green Economy–Visions and Technologies" project developed by ECOMOVE.
The main focus of the project is to emphasize the economic potential of green technologies with regard to occupational opportunities and the involvement of young people.
The objectives are to establish the “green economy” theme more firmly in schools and to bring schools and sustainability-conscious companies together.
