Are you searching for partners for your project on sustainability and environmental issues? We offer KA1 courses in Tenerife for adult education organizations and NGOs that want to work with these topics.
NEW: INNOVATIVE APPROACHES TO ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION
This course will teach innovative methodologies to teach sustainability that compel people to take action and change their individual and collective habits for the better for their health and of the environment.
Researchers have proved that the fear-based discourse is not effective for taking action regarding the environment. A positive and solution-based approach is much more effective. With this in mind, the participants will experience positive narrative, action-oriented and practical activities, examples of outdoor education by visiting permaculture ecological garden that allows reconnection with nature and ecological food through etc.
SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLES - TAKING ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS TO ACTION
This course teaches about the need of reducing the levels of consumption and the mainstream ways of purchasing and using products, food, energy etc. Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the Earth’s natural resources. Many people are aware of the importance of their consumption choices and care about environmental issues. However, most of them do not translate their concerns into concrete actions when purchasing goods and services. The participants to this course will reflect on how they can make concrete changes in their own lifestyles and change their consumption habits in order to be better equipped to teach environmental sustainability to their students.
At Tenerife Courses, our methodology is based on active learning and it is highly participative and practical. We teach using Experiential learning, Collaborative learning, Garden-based learning and outdoor education.
We are a network of educational professionals, non-profit organizations and schools and we collaborate with a wide variety of institutions you can visit.
