Course Description

Modern times, the effects of climate change are being felt in every nation on every continent. It has an impact on the quality of our lives, and it will continue to do so unless we make an effort to educate both ourselves and our children on how to make adjustments in our daily routines that will have a smaller negative effect on the surrounding environment.

Eco-Schools is an international program that aims to create a more sustainable future by promoting environmental awareness and sustainable practices in schools. The program encourages schools to take an interdisciplinary approach to sustainability and covers a wide range of topics including energy, water, waste, transportation, and school grounds. Eco-Schools is not only about protecting the environment, but also about creating a sustainable future for all. It’s about empowering young people to take action and make a difference in their communities.

This course is designed for educators and other members of the educational staff who are interested in developing their skills in the fields of environmental education, management, and sustainable development. This is a training course that is intended for management employees and educational staff, as well as teachers at pre-schools, primary schools, and secondary schools. Throughout the duration of this course, you will develop a heightened awareness of the environmental challenges that our planet as a whole as well as your region are currently confronted with, as well as the ways in which this impacts our lives and our society. In addition to this, you will become acquainted with the fundamentals as well as the methodologies of the education for sustainable development.

On the one hand, the participants will be focusing on how to include sustainable goals into the school curriculum and how to adapt materials to their context of teaching in order to maximize their effectiveness. The administrative team will conduct an evaluation of their organization with the help of the grid of indicators of a sustainable school to generate suggestions for potential actions and initiatives that will make their schools more environmentally friendly. The participants will also receive suggestions on how to get active in promoting sustainable development goals both on a local and international level to further their own communities.
