The EduBalt Workshop

EduBalt workshop on teaching sustainable devekopmentDeveloping Capacity for Teaching Sustainable Development in the Baltic Sea region
BUP for University Teachers EduBalt Project
13 – 15 March 2017
Ratnieki, Latvia

On 15 March 2017 we concluded the face-to-face part of the EduBalt course to support teacher education in the Baltic Region. The project has been designed to initiate the implementation the UNESCO Global Action Programme on ESD in the three Baltic States and also to support teacher education in responding to the Sustainable Development Goals. The first workshop was coordinated from the BUP Secretariat at Uppsala University and hosted by the University of Latvia at Ratnieki, Latvia. There were five facilitators; Dzineta Dimante from the University of Latvia and Rea Raus and Tiina Elvisto from Tallinn University, Shepherd Urenje from SWEDESD and Sinikka Suomalainen from Åbo Akademi University, Finland.

I should say the workshop was a resounding success as far as we could gather from workshop participants. We had a group of 50 participants (only 3 men) who were all very enthusiastic about improving their teacher education by integrating environment and sustainability education. The workshop results were 10 Change Projects from the three countries. The projects were very varied in nature, some with 2 people and others with up to 6 people working on a Change Project.
