Education and Values for Sustainable Development: Teaching what really matters

International Workshop with Sam Crowell: 22.-26. June 2015 in Costa Rica

This masterclass is designed for educators in formal and informal settings, whether in schools, universities, NGOs, or training centers.

Under the framework of the UNESCO Chair on Education for Sustainable Development with the Earth Charter, this programme offers an opportunity to deepen understanding on the role of education in fostering sustainability.

The programme "Education, Ethics and Values for Sustainability: Transformative Teaching and Learning with the Earth Charter" empowers educators to create practical and meaningful experiences that give power and significance to the ethical principles and values of the Earth Charter. The programme explores how to craft learning experiences that go beyond rational logic and touch on emotional learning abilities. The Earth Charter, when introduced and used in vibrant and tangible ways, provides a transformative force and offers an essential foundation for sustainability to succeed.

The programme  deepens the concept of sustainable development and its implications for education, learning, and change. It explores practical methods for introducing sustainability values into educational settings.
