More than ever, complex challenges require action on many fronts. Education, research, innovation, youth and culture have a lot to contribute.
Promoting the green transition requires the inclusion of environmentally sustainable development in education.
EU 2025 vision, it emphasizes digitalization and green practices and according to UNESCO, “Education is critical in helping the population understand and address the impacts of climate change”, so the teachers have a crucial role in the green transition.
Schools and teachers should help students understand the challenges and empower them to take action and if they play this important role, they need ongoing support with inspirational examples and professional development.
In our project, within the scope of the needs analysis surveys and SWOT analysis results conducted by all our partner institutions, the need to use sustainable development goals, STEM education method and e-learning platforms are seen.
With our project, we want to improve the skills of our educators by integrating the sustainable development goals with the STEM education method, by performing deep learning at the levels of primary school (6-12 years), secondary school (12- 15 years), high school (15-18 years) and adults (18+).
A set of measures to help schools achieve their Eco-School goals: building an eco community, running a sustainability audit, creating an action plan, monitoring and measuring their progress, Linking to the curriculum, informing and including all training centers.
A free MOOC platform For SDG’s, the place where courses with different teaching methods are held is seen as the most important element of innovation. With the MOOC platform, our participants:
The digital lesson plan book, which is among our intellectual outputs in our project, will be used free of charge by all educators.
The digital lesson plan book to be prepared will be used as a new material for all partner institutions to prepare content under the leadership of Academy for International Science and Research.
Our participants will develop interdisciplinary lesson plans and gain the ability to design lesson plans that include different teaching models of SDG.
