Politics4Future Online Course
The landscape of education for building 21st-century skills is changing significantly in the wake of climate emergencies combined with an exponential growth of youth population, digitally mediated communication and most recently the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. While the role of politics and political participation for sustainable development has been a well-researched topic, there is a lack of learning material and teacher training aimed at understanding the role of political education towards creation of a just, sustainable and peaceful world, the key ideas central to the discourse of Global Citizenship Education (GCED) and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
A new certificate program is being launched at York University for pre-service teachers, teacher trainees, and students interested in learning how to better enhance their capacities as agents for transformative change. The multi-cultural pilot online course is administered by the UNESCO Chair for Reorienting Education towards Sustainable Development, Global Citizenship, and Political Learning at York. It will involve students from 6 universities in 5 countries. This pilot online course with 9 modules with be delivered asynchronously and synchronously between March 27 and June 6, 2023.
