Politics4Future - a new pilot project for future teachers & community activists

Watch out future teachers and community activists!

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).

The Politics4Future curriculum has been developed and designed to address the gap based on the experience and research of the project partners in the field of teacher education and sustainability learning. Overall, the course will serve as a guide for pre-service teachers or teacher trainees to understand the interconnections between Education for Sustainable Development, Global Citizenship and Political Learning.
