Are we moving in the right direction? Published by the Norwegian Environment Agency

"The sustainable backpack" project is a large-scale initiative for the school sector, and is intended to awaken children's interest in and curiosity about nature, sustainable development and the world's environmental problems. It is also designed to develop their understanding of and ability to devise solutions to current and future environmental problems.

Schools are encouraged to make use of nearby countryside and green spaces in their teaching and to link environment, outdoor recreation and sustainable development with school subjects – science, social studies and food and health. In the school year 2014/2015, almost 5 % of primary and lower secondary schools and 6 % of upper secondary schools took part in the initiative.
