ESD GAP Seminar
Participation, Empowerment, Engagement:
28th November – 1st December
In 1979 the Club of Rome committed to innovative learning which integrates the ethical dimension. Nowadays, this still seems to be valid (Müller-Using 2018 1 , UN 2011 2 ). Knowledge and competence should not only be complemented by the ethical dimension but steered by it.
What changes are needed in education in order to reach the aim of the Global Goals?
What are some practical examples of innovative ways that schools have taken?
This seminar will combine input from recognised experts and the participants’ own experience and vision to explore innovative ways for education.
