Exploring in more detail.. educating & storytelling

The participants on this course all hold their own in the world of Education for Sustainable Development, so it makes sense to set aside time to hear what they work for and specialise in.

 

Alfonso tells us about his work

Alfonso tells us about his work

Alfonso, from Mexico, opened Wednesday with a presentation on the ‘Ministry of Environmental Sustainability and Land Planning,’ the organisation he works for in Puebla. Here, he says multi-tasking is important, as there are not many staff, but that work includes taking classes, workshops and educating on renewables, recycling & waste, as well as working with the National Parks and protected areas in the surrounding vicinity.

 

 

Satish talks about India

Satish, who works in India, shared a presentation on the Western Ghats in his home country. He showed many examples of how diverse India can be, in terms of plants and animals, and spoke of the work eco-clubs do for his community.

Scenario 2052 work was revisited today, but preempted by a movie made by another Indian participant, Saransh. ‘The Flight’ is an animated movie, written by Saransh (a filmmaker for ‘TERI – The Energy and Resources Institute’ in India), which shows how children can use literature and knowledge to take them from where they are to a better place.

 

Lunch was followed by a Skype presentation from the ‘Virtual Academy of Sustainability,’ a project set up and supported by an environmental organisation. It offers free video-based ESD courses, made up of lectures hosted worldwide for the benefit of anyone who wishes to know more. This presentation showed how simply ESD information can be passed on, and how technology can be utilised to make the process even easier.

The group are shown the details behind social media

The final part to the day was hosted by Dr. Jutta Franzen, who manages Social Media at the School for Management and Design of Sustainable Development.
A presentation outlined how Networks can be used as Educational Landscapes, particularly Social Networks and technology based networks e.g. ‘Delicious’ to help categorise online links, and the KMGNE blog, as a platform for online discussions.

This was then followed and summarised by a practical exercise – Can the groups summarise their Scenario work to be shared on social media? Each group was tasked with creating attention grabbing titles, URLs and introductions for their work-in-progress stories, to be worked on collaboratively using ‘TitanPad.’
