Unlike most programmes in sustainability, in these courses the Earth Charter (EC) is used as a central feature of this approach. The EC provides a broad, inclusive and powerful values-based orientation that can be infused within the missions and purposes of most educational programmes. The methodologies introduced are ones that can be applied to all learning across the curriculum and across grade levels.
Participants who successfully complete this Online Programme will be invited to join the Earth Charter Educators Network.
Some expected results:
When completing the Certificate Programme, the participants will:
Develop a greater understanding of sustainable development, the Sustainable Development Goals and their application in education.
Be familiar with new paradigms of education within the framework of Education for Sustainable Development, and related themes.
Deepen knowledge and pedagogical tools to incorporate values-based education for sustainable development in educational programmes and processes.
Internalize the ethical framework for sustainable development that is articulated in the Earth Charter, as a set of fundamental principles and values for building a more just, sustainable, and peaceful society.
Strengthen the abilities and skills to work with values and principles of sustainability and the Earth Charter in educational programmes.
