Course Description

Environmental issues and climate change are taking on growing importance, both on a global and local scale. Teachers and students perceive the urgency of environmental protection but sometimes they don’t have deep knowledge about the most relevant topics, and often feel unarmed when it comes to making any change or to take action, even in their own communities.

However, education is a key factor in how citizens relate, and act in regards to the environment. Teachers’ and learners’ awareness, initiative, and action can constitute the premises for a brighter future.

In this course, participants will reflect on the role that education plays in environmental awareness and conservation. They will gain a deeper understanding of the most significant threats to our ecosystems, learn strategies to teach environmental respect, and explore ways to connect school curricula to environmental preservation.

In addition to that, participants will have a chance to design practical activities aiming to make a significant, positive impact in their schools or broader communities.

By the end of the course, participants will be more informed as to the main notions and issues connected to ecology, such as biodiversity, pollution, climate change, sustainability.

As a consequence, they will feel more confident in managing their pupils’ debates about those topics, as well as in communicating with the school staff and community stakeholders.

Participants will have acquired practical tools to engage learners in understanding the fragility of our ecosystems and the importance of the responsibility of the citizens, and will feel prepared to build good practices and policies for more eco-friendly societies.
