Welcome to the Sustainability Teaching: Eco Skills course, designed to empower educators with the knowledge and tools to address pressing environmental challenges and foster a sustainable future. This course is tailored for school management, teachers, special education professionals, and all other staff involved in school education, adult education, and vocational education and training (VET).

In today’s world, the biodiversity crisis, exacerbated by the linear economy’s unsustainable extraction and processing of materials, fuels, and food, demands urgent attention. Recognizing that we designed this economy, the course offers the hopeful perspective that we can redesign it by tackling the root causes of biodiversity loss and maximizing the value of resources through circular economy principles.

The Sustainability Teaching: Eco Skills course introduces participants to futures studies and futures thinking, equipping them with the ability to create alternative futures and effectively address difficult environmental issues with students. Key aspects include:

  • Understanding ecological challenges, circular economy principles, and competences necessary for a sustainable future.
  • Learning about climate change, biodiversity loss, and related megatrends.
  • Developing future skills to prepare students for a circular economy society.
  • Implementing strategies to reduce climate anxiety among young people.
  • Exploring entrepreneurship, creativity, and other skills essential for sustainable development.

Education plays a pivotal role in this transformation, preparing today’s students to thrive in a future where the circular economy is the standard. The course will cover:

  • The science of futures studies and exploring future phenomena in schools.
  • Strategies to minimize stress and anxiety among students facing climate crises.
  • Techniques for creating alternative futures and fostering hope.
  • Innovative didactical approaches, including discussions, role play, and games, to engage students in sustainability topics.
  • Adapting teaching methods to meet learners’ needs, ensuring inclusive and effective education.
  • Advancing educational processes with a flexible, forward-looking curriculum that integrates cross-curricular approaches to address ecological challenges.

Participants will engage in hands-on projects, individually or in groups, to develop practical outputs that can be implemented in their schools. Throughout the week, trainers will provide ongoing coaching and support, ensuring participants can apply what they’ve learned effectively. Follow-up support will be available even after the course concludes.

Join us in this transformative journey to upskill your organization, foster a sustainable mindset, and equip the next generation with the eco skills they need to build a better future.
