Business learners from Lewisham College travelled to Naples, Italy as part of an Erasmus+ trip focusing on tackling climate change.

The trip allowed learners to visit Italy for a week to collaborate on tasks with students from Italy, Turkey, and Greece, helping them to develop communication, teamworking, and collaboration skills. The learners also took part in enrichment activities, including visiting Pompeii and The Mount Vesuvius National Park.

The overarching theme of the trip was ‘Change Yourself, Not Nature’, raising awareness of the issues faced in the fight against climate change, such as water scarcity, deforestation, pollution, droughts, and flooding. The project encouraged students to think about how lifestyle changes and personal actions can help protect the environment.

Fulya Altintas, a Business learner, said: “I enjoyed learning about the education system in Italy and having the chance to work with other students from different countries and make new friends. We learned about the impact climate change is having on the rivers in Italy and how we must act now to combat it. We also got to visit significant cultural places in Naples – it was an inspirational trip!”

Erasmus+ is an educational programme enabling students to advance their skills through studying, training, and volunteering abroad in Europe.
