Course Description

Introducing environmental education in the classroom poses a new challenge to today’s teachers. The subject is complex and the current perspectives aren’t too promising. Thus, how can we increase students’ knowledge of ecosystems and of environmental problems while also promoting hope? How can we encourage active citizenship among students when it comes to sustainable development? How to capture students’ attention and interest with an effective pedagogical method?

This course will help teachers deal with these issues by introducing them to the approach to environmental education adopted in the Finnish education system. The core curriculum for basic education in Finland emphasizes each one’s capacity to contribute to a sustainable future as it is built around four essential elements: participation, systems thinking, sufficiency, and responsibility.

As a participant in the course, you will experience how environmental education can support students’ personal relationship with nature, responsible consumer behavior, and active citizenship. You will discuss how to promote environmental education related to different environments: the forest, the city center, and the classroom.

You will learn new pedagogical methods and relevant theory through workshops, reflective discussions, and short theory input. Almost all methods used are interactive and collaborative. The group is seen as an arena for exchanging perspectives, solving problems, and learning. By the end of the course, you will know how to implement the Finnish methods on environmental education. You will feel empowered to teach environmental education in your classes once returned to your schools.
