WP3, Development of ECF for Climate Change and Sustainability
• develop and validate a European Competence Framework for Climate Change and Sustainable Development.
• the competences related to natural sciences, technology, and mathematics; social and personal competences; entrepreneurial, digital, and citizenship competences 
• Including collective competences and framework conditions

WP4, Testing the ECF: Baseline assessment
•  assess the baseline of the individual and collective competences and of the environmental performance of the selected schools
elaborating a hybrid participatory approach to evaluate the baseline through observation initiatives, interviews, questionnaires, audits, IoT solutions, citizen engagement, and citizen science
• co-designing measures to strengthen environmental awareness, engage the school community, and strengthen knowledge, skills and attitudes
• Implementing organisational structures.

WP5, Testing the ECF: Interventions
• implement a wide range of practical, replicable and scalable climate change and sustainability interventions 
• the interventions include both structural and behavioural measures co-designed through the hybrid participatory process
• the educational communities will engage in analysing and proposing solutions to their specific challenges and identifying further opportunities.
• the key performance indicators (KPIs) will serve as a tool allowing to analyse and assess the viability and impact of climate and sustainability actions 

WP6, Testing the ECF: Participatory evaluation
• assess the capacity of the interventions to enhance individual and collective competences, and improve the performance of the selected educational institutions  
• identify reasons for success and failure, and for the design of appropriate  solutions.
• describe causal relationships between the intervention and its outcomes
• engender a process of continuous collective learning, improvement, and competence-building
