Be a Changemaker: The Importance of Climate Change Education

The spectre of climate change has been with us for more than half a century. It is now that we have reached a pivotal point in how we deal with the crisis. Young activists, such as Greta Thunberg, have highlighted, not only the crisis, but also the sheer disparity in knowledge between generations. Young people are often very aware of the destruction of the environment taking place all over the world and may be more aware of it than their parents or teachers.

Despite this, there is a disconnect between the awareness they have and their role for change. Often young learners feel that responsibility lies with governments or someone else without realising their generation face the consequences of policy actions taking place today. The course aims to provide participants with theory and practical knowledge that they can apply to their daily classes and / or educational centre’s educational policy.

Environmental Changes for Sustainable Schools

Climate change is a major concern for today’s youth, and it is essential that educators are not left behind. One path to educational environmental consciousness is permaculture. The tools and knowledge that this approach offers were originally designed by Bill Mollison in the 1970s and applied to a variety of areas including education.

Permaculture is based on the philosophical concept of harmony between human actions and nature. The same can be true for education and so we can apply this philosophy to solving management issues and promoting creative thinking.

This course offers the opportunity to develop a permaculture design model that can be applied to your learning centre significantly improving your working environment.

Environmental Changes for Sustainable Schools

Modern society moves further and further away from the natural world with dire effects for society and the planet in general.

It is essential to provide learners with the awareness of the processes at work in nature and how they are affected by human action.

Public Speaking for Teachers – Building Charisma and Confidence

Are you a confident, charismatic public speaker? This communicative skill is becoming more and more important as the world develops from “knowledge-based” learning into an uncertain future, where an
ability to present yourself and articulate your ideas are essential to success.

In this course, participants will learn how to make their public speaking engaging and interesting, study the affects of body language on communication, and the vocalisation of language in speeches. The
course also examines the relationships between emotion and public speaking, creativity and brain training strategies, how to design presentations, and how to use apps and the internet to support your
own development.

The overall aim of the course is to provide teachers and learners the opportunity to make the classroom environment a truly informative space, where speaking and listening skills are continually developed.
