This course will teach innovative methodologies to teach sustainability that compel people to take action and change their individual and collective habits for the better for their health and of the environment.
Researchers have proved that the fear-based discourse is not effective for taking action regarding the environment. A positive and solution-based approach is much more effective. With this in mind, the participants will experience positive narrative, action-oriented and practical activities, examples of outdoor education by visiting permaculture ecological garden that allows reconnection with nature and ecological food through etc.
This course teaches about the need of reducing the levels of consumption and the mainstream ways of purchasing and using products, food, energy etc. Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the Earth’s natural resources. Many people are aware of the importance of their consumption choices and care about environmental issues. However, most of them do not translate their concerns into concrete actions when purchasing goods and services. The participants to this course will reflect on how they can make concrete changes in their own lifestyles and change their consumption habits in order to be better equipped to teach environmental sustainability to their students.
This course will teach active learning and experiential learning methodologies in the context of ¨out-of-classroom¨ education. Through group exercises and practical workshops, the participants will be able to reflect on the versatility of outdoor education and how they can adapt formal learning in outdoor settings such as parks, gardens, squares and plazas, on the street, in the forests, mountains, beach etc. For example, the participants will learn about environmental education and garden-based learning by visiting a permaculture ecological garden, that forsters reconnection with nature and ecological food.
