Green-Schools and the Global Goals

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals (officially known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs).  These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change. We have under a decade of action left to achieve these goals. We want to show you how your work on the Green-Schools Programme can help.

Each day of the course focuses on one Green-Schools theme and an overarching Global Goal. By the end of the week you will be able to make clear links between your work on the Green-Schools programme and all of the Global Goals.

Course Structure

  • Day 1 : Global Citizenship themes, Intro to the Global Goals (SDGS) and SDG4: Quality Education

  • Day 3: Travel and Marine Environment and SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

Feedback from our 2020 Course

Last year was a challenge to take our much loved face to face course online and we think it was a big hit. Here’s what some of last year’s participants had to say:

This was an extraordinarily well-delivered course by a team of committed, enthusiastic and knowledgeable facilitators. To be able to facilitate a Face-to-Face course on Zoom in the manner that they did, was exceptional. To a person, they displayed a dedicated, supportive, professional approach throughout the week, making the experience a thoroughly enjoyable one.

I loved the course. It has been the nicest CPD course I’ve ever done. It was the right amount of informative and active.

Very professionally run. Engaging and enthusiastic course facilitators & presenters. Diverse range of material. Seamless integration of presentation, chatroom and active activities. Extensive resources; presentations, videos, quizzes, activities. By far the most enjoyable, informative and engaging course I have ever participated in.
