The teaching materials presented in the Streetsmarts teachers’ guide are designed to help secondary-school teachers present Europe's main urban challenges and engage their students in the quest for solutions. The materials are ideal for use with students between the ages of 16 and 18 and address the challenges of sustainable food supply; energy efficiency; green transport; the ageing society; climate change; urban space; and social exclusion. This series of factsheets provides students with background information relevant to each of the challenges, and complements the other resources contained in the guide, such as games, discussion points and creative activities.
The SEiSMiC project supports and adds a social dimension to JPI Urban Europe. It is funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration, and is implemented with the participation of the REC's Smart Cities and Mobility Topic Area.
