BUP Teachers’ Day 2023

2023-04-04

This online session that takes place on 18 April 2023 focuses on inner sustainability as a vital part of sustainability education in contemporary higher education. We welcome all teachers within the BUP!

The workshop is organised by BUP Finland and led by EdD Ann-Christin Furu. She has 25 years’ experience as a lecturer and researcher in teacher education. Her research interest lies within sustainability education, and she is an associate professor in early childhood education at the Åbo Akademi University. Her research currently focuses on the intersection of resilience and the sustainability crises and how resilience might be supported among children, students, and staff in the Anthropocene.

Traditionally, Sustainable Development is based on three pillars: the ecological, the societal, and the economic sustainability. But to be aware of these, your inner transition, or inner sustainability, is of importance. How do you understand, feel and relate to all the things that are happening around you? Both on the local and the global scale. When you support your own wellbeing and work to develop abilities, skills, and qualities for inner growth, you are better prepared to act for the transformation needed to create a better world.

The Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing war in Ukraine are factors that are affecting us all. Some more than others, unfortunately. To keep the courage, energy, and enthusiasm both in your profession and in your private life, you must take care of your inner sustainability.

This is an online session that focuses on inner sustainability as a vital part of sustainability education in contemporary higher education. Some main questions include:

  • What is inner sustainability?
  • Why is it important?
  • How can it be strengthened among students and teachers?

During the session, participants get the opportunity to develop a blueprint for integrating inner sustainability into both their teaching and their own lives.

Ann-Christin Furu will lead the workshop during the BUP Teachers’ Day 2023.
