In the transformative world of today, the role of environmental education has become a much-debated issue. The experience from various EU countries shows lack of a concrete policy for the advancement of those strategic skills that correspond to the identified need for the connection of environmental education to green career choices. This paper discusses the process being currently followed by the GreeNET project for the promotion of innovative and engaging activities that underline the scientific aspect of environmental education, to provoke interest on green sciences among students, and thus contribute to the increased number of students choosing science-related subjects. The goal is to form a concrete framework for the collection and exchange of exceptional yet limited and non-associated good practices in the area of environmental education and green career counselling, and teacher training. For this reason, a European network of teachers is formed and trained to develop the competencies necessary to educate their students according to cutting-edge approaches in environmental education.
