Greening Education Event (IGEE) is a premier global annual event
which is being held since 2009. It brings together stakeholders
from around the world in Karlsruhe, Germany to shape the future
of education and discuss the challenging issue of integrating
sustainability across all academic disciplines. It provides
policy makers, senior faculty members, teachers, members of
multilateral institutions and other stakeholders a unique
opportunity to share and learn the latest in education, examine
how to redesign curriculum and courses, reform teaching and
learning, green academic facilities and create and deliver
innovative education programs that meet the requirements of
changing society as well as the natural environment.
The conference features best practices examples from around the world. A range of initiatives that have been taken in different countries are presented, fresh ideas are exchanged, failures analysed and successes celebrated. This global gathering of innovative and creative professionals is also about socializing with those who have shared interests. It is also about exploring possibilities of cooperation with institutions interested in re-shaping education and leading the transformation process. Moreover, the conference provides a distinctive opportunity to get to know practitioners having experience of embarking on the sustainability journey.
The next global gathering will take place in October 2016 (tentatively). The registrations are currently open. If you are interested in attending this event and benefiting from the collective knowledge, ideas, intelligence, expertise and enthusiasm of global delegates committed to make education more relevant to changing needs of the society and the natural environment, please send us an email: mail[@]eosd.org.
The global academic community and other stakeholders interested in the subject of transforming education will be meeting in October 2016 in Karlsruhe. If you would like to discuss your active participation, you are welcome to contact us via e-mail: mail [@] eosd.org.
institutions and educators need to do to effectively respond
to the fast changing global scenario?
How to successfully position academic institutions as one of the key leaders in creating a sustainable world – environmentally, socially and economically?
What competencies, capacities, abilities, skills and attitudes are increasingly in demand and will be the “must-haves” in the future?
How to engage young and adult learners in sustainable development?
These and many other fundamental questions need to be extensively discussed and answered to launch or to intensify our efforts for mainstreaming sustainability in education.
