Take part: 4 Dec 2020 is World Sustainable Development Teach-In Day!

ESSSR and partners organize the World Sustainable Development Teach-In Day 2020 (WSD-TID 2020). We cordially invite you to be a part of history, a decade-long global movement that aims to raise and spread awareness of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By participating in this major event, you will help accelerate progress towards achieving the SDGs at the grassroots level by focusing on sustainable education and to infuse sustainability thinking into current education systems. Here is how it works:

Lecturers from universities and further institutions all over the world are encouraged to partake in this global sustainability movement by holding a presentation within the framework of their respective institutions (offline or online) on any of the topics listed below.

Category A: Theory and practice of sustainable development
Category B: Environmental, social, political and economic aspects of sustainable development
Category C: Education, communication and training on sustainable development.
Category D: In-Campus and regional initiatives involving different groups and stakeholders whose approach/methods may be replicable or likely to be of interest to a wide audience.

A large set of high-quality presentations (slides) will be provided free of charge by the WSDTID 2020 in the form of open educational resources, meaning you are free to use them in your classroom, you can adapt or change to suit your very own needs. Currently, the presentations are being prepared and, after a thorough quality control, will be made available from 9 November 2020 onwards to allow proper preparation.
