How can you integrate sustainability issues into the class curricula? How do you put theory into action? This section is particularly addressed to teachers and trainers. The aim is to provide them with a ‘mini-guide’ for an integrated and educational approach to the website, making their task of introducing SC to students easier.

The welcome! section is an introduction to the YXC project: who is behind it, what it is about, what SC means, its implications in terms of every-day life, the role that the website can play in scholastic activities or in other committed contexts (youth action groups). The instructions-for-use chapter offers you both a practical and a theoretical approach to the website. Here you will find a detailed description of this tool’s mechanisms, so that everybody will be able to correctly navigate and make use of the richness of its contents. The second part of the chapter highlights the semantic aspect, focusing the case-study approach and its importance at a pedagogical level. This section underlines the didactic potential of YXC, its aim to become a support for teachers in their commitment to integrating traditional educational approaches with an inter-disciplinary one and with environmental and human development issues. The class work section, finally, intends to promote the translation of theory into practice. By offering a series of class activities, trainers can raise interest and activate their students’ participation. Youngster are confronted with complex issues like healthy living, consumption check-up, media-literacy, etc.: they are asked to develop a concrete approach to sustainability’s main issues and to take action by increasing awareness, critical analysis and networking.
