Learning for a Sustainable Future (a 5 week free online course)
Through this 5 week MOOC learners explore a range of global, community and school-based contexts and develop an informed personal response to major contemporary challenges faced today.
The open licensed videos from the course look into the environmental education movement, including development education and global citizenship, the interconnected nature of sustainability issues, and attempts to address many of these at national and international levels through the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
The course has an additional strand for those working in formal or informal education, who want to bring some of the activities and issues covered in the course into their own teaching.
Learning for a Sustainable Future: Live at COP26 (a 2 week free online course)
The 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) was held in Glasgow, Scotland between 31st October and 12th November 2021, bringing together heads of state, climate experts and campaigners to agree and accelerate coordinated global action on climate change.
This two-week course, which ran in parallel with the COP26 conference, offers an opportunity to examine what COP26 is, why it’s and future events like it are important and reflect on how you can add your voice to the call for collective action for a sustainable future.
Learners explore the broader context of COP26 and consider other key frameworks such as COP15 (The UN Convention on Biological Diversity) and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
