The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and Sandwatch have published a call for applications for a training on climate change. The two formidable organizations will conduct the training tagged “Climate Change In and Outside the Classroom” for African educators.
UNESCO is the lead agency for the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014) and Sandwatch is a volunteer network of schools and community-based organizations working together to monitor and enhance their beach environments.
The goal of the session is to help youth populations understand climate change and address its impact through practical and locally-based approach. This four day course supports educators to discuss climate change in and outside the classroom. It provides a conceptual background to Climate Change Education for Sustainable Development (CCESD), with practical exercise, that takes place in and outside the classroom.
The session will take place in Praia, Cape Verde, from 25-28 November. UNESCO will take care of the fees of participants.
