Sustainability is a topic that grows in importance for our future and goes far beyond what most of us first imagine while hearing about it. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development created by the United Nations sets 17 sustainable development goals and provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future. In this course, participants will have a chance to explore sustainability from different points of view and develop strategies on how to raise the awareness of the students, encourage them to take action, and develop personal responsibility. As one of the sustainable goals aims on education with ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all, participants will also have a chance to practice and plan on how to implement sustainability directly in their work.
Course content and fundamental information will be introduced through thematic modules that target different issues of sustainability. It is based on practical demonstrations, hands-on approach, interactive experiential exercises, and active participation within a group consisting of international participants with similar interests and needs. The emphasis will be on preparing participants to implement sustainability in their work and encouraging and facilitating it in student actions.
