Transforming teacher education policy and practice for sustainable development in Southern Africa: Sustainability Starts with Teachers
UNESCO’s Regional Office for Southern Africa are happy to announce that the NEW website on Education for Sustainable Development for teachers and teacher educators in the Southern African region is NOW LIVE!
The portal kicks off at time UNESCO and partners are working on fostering distance education to ensure learning never stops in the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The website provides course materials, news, stories of change, policy briefs and an interactive learning space, developed under the Capacity Building Programme for Teacher Educators on Education for Sustainable Development called, “Sustainability Starts with Teachers”. The web portal was developed in partnership with Rhodes University and will support the upcoming online Sustainability Starts with Teachers regional course to be launched in September 2020. Go to the Sustainability Starts with Teachers website for more information.
