JUST ACTION – Teachers and students towards a sustainable transition
Research conducted as part of the application process indicated that teachers in Ireland see the value of global citizenship education (GCE) to fostering resilient, creative students, motivated to take action on climate justice. At the same time, teachers feel under-supported to approach GCE, and are keen to increase their skills. Just Action aims to bridge this gap, adopting a design-thinking approach to developing resources and teacher training to ensure our outputs are effective, useful, and accessible.
to provide appropriate educational resources for primary and secondary teachers and their students
to provide a training programme for teachers at both levels, supported by an online Resource and Learning Platform for teacher and student access
to make learners feel empowered to participate as an active global citizen and take action on climate and sustainability issues and challenges that matter to them most
to create greater opportunities for school to school collaboration via eTwinning
to grow, scale and sustain the programme through the regional education systems in each country, thus increasing access of the programme to schools, teachers and learners nationally and transnationally
to build capacity of the programme partners to manage the design life cycle of educational programmes
