Teachers play a key role in communicating a progressive ‘green’ message to younger generations. Creating Green Classrooms is designed to show how teachers can bring lessons about sustainability and positive climate action into their everyday teaching. This course offers a professional development opportunity designed to show teachers how they can integrate a positive green message into their teaching practice. The main objectives are:

  • To promote environmental consciousness and sustainable practices in secondary school classrooms. Participants will analyse methods to incorporate climate-positive practices into their teaching, explore practical steps to create eco-friendly classrooms and discover innovative strategies for engaging students in green topics through creative projects and activities.
  • To assess materials and resources suitable for implementing green approaches and collaborate on developing imaginative lesson plans.
  • To not only enhance their English language skills but also, exchange innovative teaching ideas with fellow educators.
  • Activities include completing tasks designed to stimulate. discussions and analysis of the concept of a ‘green classroom,’ engaging in workshop sessions to reflect on ways to integrate green activities into teaching, and opportunities to improve English language proficiency through content-based lessons.
  • Participants will also be directed towards online resources tailored for educators interested in ‘green’ initiatives and will have the chance to embark on cultural and heritage trips as part of a chaperoned group.
