About SUTEE project

Showcasing Urban Trees for Environmental Education with
IoT Technology. SUTEE is an ERASMUS+ Strategic Cooperation Partnership in the field of school education project.

Ref. No: 2023-1-ES01-KA220-SCH-000153498

Project Description

We deliberately concentrate our efforts on the urban environment, rather than far away natural habitats like jungles or rain forests, because citizens, and school students in particular, connect more strongly and emotionally with their immediate local surroundings. Furthermore, green spaces like parks, lawns, gardens, and uncultivated fallow lands are easily accessible for inquiry-based learning activities, excursions, and recreational activities.

The project aims to address the following issues:
– appreciation of the natural landscapes and features in cities (tree cover, parks, bushes, lawns, fallow spaces, fountains,
river sides)
– create competences to support urban environmental behaviours (protecting biodiversity) – including personal surroundings
like gardens
– awareness of citizen participation in avoiding degradation of ecosystems and destructive city planning that exacerbates
UHIs and destroys urban tree canopy (UTC)
– aggregate a variety of climate protecting approaches (fountains, vertical gardens, etc.)
– build knowledge, skills and attitudes around sustainable living (GreenComp framework)
– generate digital competences to collect and interpret urban environmental data (e.g. CO2 air quality, soil moisture deficits)
