MOS is a joint initiative of 7 partners: the Flemish government, the 5 Flemish provinces and the Flemish Community Commission (Brussels). Since 2001, MOS has offered support to primary and secondary schools.
MOS makes schools that work on sustainability issues stronger by connecting these issues with the pupils’ living and learning environment. Global themes such as climate change and the decline of biodiversity are connected with environmental and spatial issues that play a role in and around the school. Teachers and pupils who are working on topics that are locally relevant, often feel more involved and more motivated. That is why MOS always works together with them and with the whole school, customized to the school.
Together with the school team, the pupils, the neighbourhood and local partners, MOS gets to work in order to make the school a sustainable learning and living environment.
