Students for Sustainability - Global skills for language teachers

Traditional education gives students few opportunities to explore, understand, and solve real world problems. As life-long learning becomes more important around the world, we enrich our learning beyond language. 

We will look at how we can integrate the Global Goals and language in our classroom to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. To make a positive change we need to feel connected to and responsible for a wider world.  

Enjoy a few concrete examples and activities focused on specific aspects of some challenges our world is facing and how we can improve to improve it.  

These challenges are big and complicated, so they have no easy solutions. Since they affect all of us, let’s call them global challenges and let’s develop global skills as language teachers. 

Activities to make the world a better place - Agenda 2030

The 21st. Century Skills promotes the integration of skills which are seen as key elements in teaching and learning core academic subjects.
Our goal is to support our learners to engage with concepts at a deeper level and connect them to the real world.
We will focus on several creative ideas to deepen our understanding of a few of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals getting both theoretical input and hand-on experience. It is an approach on how to implement Agenda 2030 in our classes.

The approach is inspired by the Learn-Think-Act framework used in Oxfam’s global citizenship education material.

Learners are introduced to keywords, concepts and basic information on current situations and causes relevant to global challenges. They are prompted to think empathetically and creatively, ask questions, and reflect upon their roles in their community and the wider world. Learners are then motivated and supported to take concrete actions around them-whether they are large or small.

What do you want to make our world a better place?
