The excessive use of medicaments especially antibiotics, non-correct storage, non-environmentally friendly release which may entail groundwater contamination, the need for medicament recycling are some important SD themes. Additionally, economical and social dimensions appear. The practice of the so called “social pharmacy” developed in Greece in the era of economic crisis (aiming at the use of quantities of remaining drugs by poor people) illustrates these dimensions. The objectives are compatible with EQF level 5 (for instance the competence review and develop performance of self and others). They also correspond to VET further specifications of ESD Core Competences.
The purpose of this Web quest activity is the creation by the students of informative posters after searching for information in proposed web pages on sustainable development issues regarding medicaments and their management by the 'social pharmacy'.
