R.O.P.E. (Reshaping Our Practices in Education)

ESD as a cross-curricular theme

Training seminar for Heads of Departments

The seminar aims to facilitate a more clear definition of ESD and perceive it as a cross-curricular theme that has to be integrated into the teaching and learning process in all areas. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss skills and competencies to be acquired by learners in such a learning process. The seminar will also discuss already existing programmes like Eathink WE EAT RESPOSIBLY, Dinja Wahda, Eco-Skola, Alter aqua, LEAF, among others, that can be used as tools to help them integrate ESD principles into their daily teaching and learning processes; while keeping in mind that their creativity can lead them to develop any other tool or methodology they might require for this purpose.
