Activist Session: Sustainable and Transformative Education for Participation in democratic life (STEP Forward)
STEP Forward is an 18-months Capacity Building project. It links active citizenship to
formal education by drawing attention to the values of sustainability. It is trying to be critical towards the “culture of growth” by exploring alternative community models and economies in Vietnam, Spain, Greece, Peru, Ghana, and Kenya. The project uses information and resources to design an educational module with the scope to integrate the values of sustainability in the formal education system. During the workshop, the project’s concept and educational approach will be presented. A non-formal education activity related to sustainability that was developed during a Job Shadowing in one of the partner countries will be implemented. Discussion upon tools and methods that the educational system and relevant professionals could use to inspire future change makers will follow.
