  • What

In September 2015, a new global action plan was signed by the 193 countries that make up the United Nations. They agreed unanimously to adopt a strategy to deal with the biggest threats humanity is facing: climate change, inequality, hunger, wars,… This new strategy is the Agenda 2030. It is put into practice from 2015 to 2030, and proposes 17 goals with 169 targets which serve as a roadmap for achieving sustainable development. The member states of the UN have vowed to take the necessary measures to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). However, for the Agenda 2030 to become a reality, it needs everyone’s support and engagement. How can the educational community help attain the SDG’s?

One of the main Goals is SDG4: Quality education. One of its targets, 4.7, wants to ensure that, by 2030, all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including among others through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development. Teacher training is crucial to achieve this target and to attain the social transformation which is necessary to deal with current challenges. This 5-day course, which will take place in Málaga, aims for the appropriation of the Agenda 2030, and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. It will offer the teachers the necessary tools to design activities or programmes to blend the SDG’s in with their subjects, in a structured and integrated manner.

The principal topic of this course is the link that can be made between Education and Sustainable Development. In the first part of the course, the focus will mainly lie on the UN’s 2030 Agenda and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Participants will go over the different aspects of Sustainable Development: today’s environmental issues, as well as the economic, and social ones, and how they interrelate.

The second part of the training will explore all the ways in which education can help achieve Sustainable Development, and serve as a tool for social change. The educators will discover various methodologies and strategies for implementing the ‘SDGs’ in their classroom, and put them into practice during the hands-on workshops. They will also have a chance to visit 2 schools which are already in the process of integrating the SDGs in their classes, and in their day-to-day schoollife.
