“Water, water, every where…” or are we entering a scenario of water-wars, as some predict? Water is taken for granted in many societies around the world, and yet forms the basis of conflict is so many others. Access to water is necessary to life and is regarded as a fundamental human right. What are the consequences of floods and periods of drought? How are global water resources and their use by young people being approached through sustainability in our school curriculum?
This month’s discussion:
We will be:
- sharing good ideas about water sources and consumption
- reviewing and discussing what makes a good resource in a sustainability curriculum
- map resources them to see how to use different concepts and themes across Key Stages and subjects
- analyse our sustainable development thinking and practice and
- explore some useful teaching techniques.
Each month new tools and techniques will be added – so that by the end of the year you will have a ‘toolkit’, a map of resources and good practice guides. Plus your mapping will help you to work collaboratively with your colleagues across your organisation. Finally you can ask the group for help and advice on developing your own sustainability curriculum as you go.
Great CPD for a few minutes a week!
All for £24 for the year – very good value! If you are a trainee teacher its just £10/year and SEEd members – £12/year.
