Limited Capacity seats available

Learning and teaching English gives us the opportunity to grow in our understanding of ourselves and the world in which we live. It is becoming increasingly urgent to recognize the importance of sustainability in our lives. In 2014 UNESCO declared that education for Sustainable Development allows every human being to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future, and designed 17 goals need for our world. What does this mean to us as English educators? How might our teaching change so that we can better support our learners in reaching the goals set out for us by the United Nations?

In this session we will look at the Goals for Sustainable Development, discuss why they are important to us as English Educators, and explore concepts from living systems theory as ways to guide us in to work in our classrooms that lead students to develop and act as change agents and leaders for sustainable development.
