Get to know EduGems
EduGems story began when two Finnish mums – Linda and Marianne – with an exceptional passion for and experience of education – found each other.
EduGems Finland was founded in early 2019 as a response to the huge interest in Finnish educational travel programs. Finland is known for its high education standard. EduGems offers teachers and schools education and training programs and lesson plans that are based on Education for Sustainable Development and future skills pedagogy.
Before Covid-19, EduGems Finland’s core products were education camp programs for 10-17 year olds, teacher trainings and workshops in Finland.
The research-based programs combined STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) with Sustainable Development and 21st century skills. Movement and nature was a natural part of the programs and cooperation was carried out with camp centers around Finland. The core themes of the education programs all revolve around sustainable development with programs such as Circular Solutions, Eco-Design, Fresh Water and Megatrends. Students would get to experience the Finnish way of learning through student-centered project based, phenomenal approaches. As a response to Covid-19 and with all travel programs being cancelled, EduGems Finland created an e-learning platform to still be able to reach out to teachers and schools directly.
So here YOU are today, joining us from all parts of the world!
The online teacher trainings put emphasis on the urgent need to integrate Education for Sustainable Development into all areas of education. There is a global lack of lessons where students are empowered to use their capacity to understand wicked, systemic global challenges. EduGems Finland’s trainings give teachers concrete tools and ideas for how to use student-centered project-based, phenomenal approaches.
EduGems’ team has kept growing and already includes several talented and enthusiastic members. We have now representatives in Finland, Nepal, China, Latin America and India.
