Course Description

Global issues like climate change are becoming more and more urgent, and schools have an increasing responsibility towards students’ need for education about those topics.

But how should teachers really engage with those topics in classes? And how can they support their students to take effective action in the issues that matter to them, as well as to face new challenges?

This course adopts a global perspective on the themes of sustainable development, ecological footprints, global justice, and poverty, and how these influence and are influenced by climate change.

By adopting an interdisciplinary approach, this course recognizes the contributions of teachers of all subjects and ages to meaningful climate action.

In this course, participants will be engaged in learner-centered activities, such as group discussions, debates, case studies, and role-plays, which are suitable for use in the classroom with learners of different levels.

Each module will explore the root causes of global challenges, and build the knowledge, values, attitudes and skills teachers need to empower their students.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to integrate climate change and global citizenship into their lesson plans, and feel ready to lead whole-school action projects that engage the community and produce meaningful results.

The course was extremely interesting. I learnt a lot of new things and got useful tips to implement the topics with my students. The course provider made everyone feel comfortable. She was very easygoing. She even added all the course attendants in a mailing list and from time to time she still sends us materials or updates on the topics of the course.

En el curso hemos aprendido y hemos entrado en contacto con diferentes formas de crear proyectos con nuestros alumnos que les creen conciencia sobre los problemas medioambientales y el cambio climático. El curso ha sido muy positivo puesto que hemos tenido la oportunidad de debatir no sólo sobre la problemática medioambiental, sino también, crear a grandes rasgos un proyecto para llevar a cabo con nuestros alumnos en un futoro.
