Course overview and purpose:
Basics of climate change (causes and effects) and carbon footprint calculation, Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Cooperative Learning will be the focus of this course. Main national and international meetings and documents will be disclosed and summarized, stressing their value for school and educative interventions, with a focus on UNESCO and UNECE ESD strategy, emerging from the UNESCO decade for Sustainable Development and UN SGDs.
Mental maps and flowcharts of the complex and articulated “world” of Sustainability will be created together.
A special focus will be on connections among ESD and key competences for lifelong learning development in students and teachers.
The course will alternate moments of frontal presentation, with the use of slides, tests and questionnaires, individual and cooperative group works. It will be carried on to build together a thematic glossary on Sustainability and analyse how adapting some of the best practices presented to one’s reality, to shape Cooperative Lessons.
Teachers (pre-school, primary, secondary, vocational, adult, special needs, intercultural education); teacher trainers; careers officers; educational counsellors; principals, managers of schools
