VIII TEACHERS FOR DEVELOPMENT NATIONAL MEETING: "TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD: THE 2030 AGENDA FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT"
The Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID), attached to the Foreing Affairs European Union and Cooperation Ministry, together with the Education and Professional Training Ministry, organize the VIII Teachers for Development National Meeting: Creating Networks, which was held in Guadarrama, Madrid, on May 4, 5 and 6, at the Fray Luis de León Cultural Center.
This meeting is aimed at teachers participating in the Education for Development National Award "Vicente Ferrer" and proposes a plan of action in favor of people, the Planet and prosperity. It also aims to strengthen universal peace within a broader concept of freedom.Continuing with the dissemination of the SDOs and deepening the slogan that will mark the way to 2030: people in the center without leaving anyone behind, a path that we undertook in previous meetings, seeks to make these concepts the axis of the VIII Teachers for Development National Meeting: creating networks. The SDO on the way to the School.
Taking as a starting point the reflection about the role of the school in the achievement of the SDOs, the Network of Teachers for Development has been working for a year on this reflection and as a result of it the two publications that will be presented in this Meeting came up.
The authors of the #PubliODS Project, will present the materials and will give didactic workshops to facilitate the implementation of them.
Throughout this Meeting, we will have the opportunity to know, deepen and exchange ideas on how to implement this Development Agenda in our classrooms.
Another aspect that will be worked on in this Meeting will be the importance of active methodology, which motivates students and turns the classrooms into learning, participation and collaboration spaces.
This Agenda challenges us all as responsible for the achievement of the SDOs by 2030 and, therefore, as agents of transformation, we must reflect and make decisions about the role of the school and how it can contribute to the advancement of this Agenda, that requires us all as active and participatory citizenship.
