My Eco-School and Sustainable Development
At present climate change is affecting every country on every continent. It affects the quality of our life and it will continue to do so unless we try to educate ourselves and our children to make changes in our lives that will impact the environment less.
‘My Eco-school and Sustainable Development’ course addresses teachers and educational staff who want to develop in the area of environmental education, management, and sustainable development. It is a training course for pre-school, primary and secondary school teachers, as well as for management staff and educational staff. During this course, you will become more aware of the environmental issues our world and your region are facing and how this affects our lives and society. You will also become familiarized with the principles and techniques of education for sustainable development.
On the one hand, the teachers will focus on ways to include sustainable goals into the school curriculum and how to adapt materials to their context of teaching. The management staff will use the grid of indicators of a sustainable school to evaluate their institution and get ideas for future actions/ projects to turn their schools more eco-friendly. Participants will also get ideas on how to get involved at their local level and on an international level to promote sustainable development goals.
The methodological techniques include:
Team – Building Sessions;
Ice – Breaking and Warm-Up Sessions;
Goal – Setting sessions;
Case studies and examples of good practices
