Learn to teach about sustainable development

By year 2030 EduGems wants to have equipped one million educators with skills and knowledge to teach ESD.

Transformative competences are urgently needed at schools

EduGems Finland is an education company providing innovative research-based online teacher training on how to learn and teach about Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in schools. We want to help individual teachers and entire schools around the world to strengthen their capabilities for holistic transformation.

Our emphasis is on empowering teachers and schools to be ambassadors for the change – by coaching them to plan their own ESD practices. Only then they will own their own change and innovate a direction towards the better!

Superpowers through ESD and positive pedagogy

In Moldova, Science, Chemistry and Biology subjects teachers were invited to cooperate. They showed in their schools education that really matters for the future. “Parents were impressed by the motivation of their kids searching and exploring information about the materials, how they are used and what the reason is for the raw materials.”

E-waste management ambassadors

In Mexico, teachers are working on “E-WASTE”: a project that seeks to minimise electronic waste pollution through collaboration between the educational sector and the private sector. “This project was born as a result of the training that EduGems has provided to our school.”

Student testimonials

The education of sustainable goals is enlightening as well as an eye opener of the importance of the greater power of nature. Children will need to appreciate and learn to preserve it to empower their learning journey. I would definitely want to come back again to look into more of module 1.

– Alpa Tropani, teacher

There are things we take for granted but education should not be one of them nor should the thinking “once a teacher, always a teacher” mold our thinking. Cultures vary so much and so does education in different parts of the world that we need to understand that we actually are members of a global village with the same needs of good education that reaches its goals. I think this course (module 1) is a very good tool towards that.
