Summer School Creating a Climate for Change – Lecturer Edition: SDG4 Educating for Sustainability

During the Summer School Creating a Climate for Change, Lecturer Edition a group of U4 lecturers, policy makers, course coordinators and others came together to work on cases relating to Sustainability in Education.


New perspectives
During the week, participants worked on their own cases and helped each other with new ideas and perspectives. The sessions consisted of workshops and exercises that led towards concrete steps to solving the case. At the end of the Summer School, participants presented their solutions to the cases they had brought in, and explained the steps that they would take in achieving their goals.

Inspiration and experience
The Summer School also offered inspiring workshops and lectures. Such as the lectures by Arjen Wals, professor in Transformative Learning from Wageningen University, who taught us how to ‘learn our way out of extinction’. Sietske Vissers, from the University of Groningen, let participants experience what it is like to sit in a classroom with a disability and gave suggestions how to make our classrooms more inclusive. Laila Mendy and Aaron Tucky from the University of Uppsala let participants design new sustainable courses, CEMUS-style. And last but not least, to nourish the creativity and mental health of the participants a yoga and meditation class and a creative drawing workshop were organized. The video of the lecture by Arjen Wals and other materials will be published on the website soon.
