Global Schools Advocates in Action: The Teacher Perspective on Transformative Education
The Global Schools Program is a K12 network of 1,580+ schools and 1,350+ Advocates and program alumni from ~90 countries. Global Schools has been working internationally to support schools and educators with evidence-informed training and localized classroom resources to integrate sustainable development into school curricula, operations, and activities. Global Schools’ mission is to create a world where every primary and secondary school student is equipped with the knowledge, values, and skills necessary for effectively responding to the greatest challenges of this century and shaping a sustainable and prosperous world.
In this session, education practitioners and Global Schools Advocates will share their work integrating education for sustainable development into K12 school communities. Each educator will share a specific case study or experience in their own context. ICSD attendees will have the opportunity to hear best practices, lessons learned, and tips and strategies on the effective use of SDGs in the classroom. This practical session will inspire others and celebrate the international community of teachers on the occasion of the Transformative Education Summit, in support of Mission 4.7.
