Microsoft & WWF Education for a Sustainable Planet Learning Path
“A fast-growing movement of young campaigners is spreading around the world to demand action on climate change from political leaders, governments and businesses. Their message is not only an environmental one but is also framed in terms of global justice, between nations and generations.
As educators, how can we best respond to their concerns for the future of the planet? And how can we help to empower our students to make a difference to the world around them? If you want to bring Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) to the heart of your teaching and school life, and nurture a new generation of sustainability champions, this course is for you!
This learning path, developed by WWF, aims to help you further your understanding of sustainability and equip you with relevant information, tools, activities and good ideas from other skilled practitioners to make Education for Sustainable Development a cornerstone of your teaching practice. The path uses stunning photos and inspirational videos from the Our Planet series (created by WWF, Netflix, and Silverback Films) to bring the story of our planet to life. It is designed for primary and secondary teachers and all those who want to develop a whole school approach to education for sustainability, and thus play a vital role in steering society towards a sustainable future.
What will you gain from the learning path?
A better understanding of Education for Sustainable Development and an exploration of why, with today's challenges such as climate change and loss of biodiversity, it is increasingly important that sustainability becomes an integral part of teaching and learning.
A wide range of strategies, activities and ideas that you can use to develop Education for Sustainable Development in your teaching practice and school life.
Access to examples of inspirational practice from around world.
