Developed intellectual outputs at environmental educational elements will be integrated in schools daily teaching practise through a multidisciplinary approach where pupils aged between 12 and 14 will be able to understand relevant water-close interlinks between different subjects: natural and social sciences, arts, water technology (as horizontal learning element involved in each subject).
