Teachers for Change: Strategies for Sustainability in the Classroom and Beyond

IEA collaborated with Networking European Civic Education (NECE), for the 2024 Campus Programme which focuses on the pivotal role of teachers in fostering Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).

The session highlighted how ESD equips learners with the necessary knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes to make informed decisions and act for the environment and society. Through the ICCS 2022 Teacher Snippet, the speakers explored classroom examples that actively promote citizenship and sustainability among students, demonstrating how these practices benefit wider communities.
