Course overview and purpose:
This course aims to provide key knowledge, practical tools and hands-on experience to create sustainable and climate friendly school communities. Starting from the main references from the international framework, including the UN Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals, the key concepts, facts and innovative theories around sustainability and climate, the course is designed to apply systemic thinking and creative approaches to tackle these issues in schools in an integrated way, through collaboration, team working and effective engagement across all school areas and the wider communities. Besides some institutional references, such as the UNESCO 2020 “Getting Climate Ready” guide for schools, the course will provide a practical Toolkit guiding you to develop your own climate project/initiative to bring back to your school by day 5. The course is designed for people working both in teaching and non-teaching capacities, as everyone has a role to play in this challenging but exciting transition.
People working both in teaching and non-teaching capacities in primary, secondary, VET and adult education
