Super Week of Sustainability

October 1, 2023 - October 7, 2023


Super Week of Sustainability

Registration is now closed

Super Week of Sustainability is your opportunity to learn from Finnish experts’ skills, mindset and methods for teaching sustainable development topics. We will dive into the world of sustainable development from different perspectives and together walk towards creating more sustainable future.

We are delighted to partner with Educational and Cultural Services, City of Oulu to provide teachers, educators and school administrators from around the world tools to create the school of the future today.

The central and sometimes difficult themes of sustainable development affect us all. But instead of losing hope, we can take an active role and act. The activity starts from interest and empathy towards nature and its diversity, because what you value, you want to take care of. That is the goal of the course: to take care of the future of the entire planet.

The themes of sustainable development must be brought to the fore in everything we do, in everyday school life. The aim of the course is to create an understanding of these themes and to concretize them to the level of making. We believe that the promotion of these themes belongs to the entire school community, not just to a few dedicated people. After the course, you will have the tools to act and promote sustainable development in your own work community.

Join us and enhance your teaching skills and methodologies in an innovative network of experts and schools from early childhood education, basic education, and upper secondary school. Together we build sustainable future.

The course is organized by Educational and Cultural Services, City of Oulu and VisitEDUfinn Ltd. We both have a track record of organizing educational events with the Quality Standards for courses under Key Action 1 as required by the European Commission, suitable for teachers with ERASMUS+ grant. `
