Appreciation of the Jury

As a framework, the programme sets goals and standards and at the same time addresses the specific individual framework conditions of each individual school. Each school has its own school blog. By means of a certification system, the participating schools are interconnected. Everyone is involved, within and beyond the school. Around the theme of healthy and environmentally conscious nutrition, simultaneous awareness-raising, school development, and strengthening of regional economic cycles take place. A successful combination. Simple, complex, and innovative in the process.
