New Project for Teacher Education in Southern Africa!

Recent research on educational quality confirms that teachers are central to educational transformation, and thus also for strengthening social learning systems. With this in mind, the SARChI Chair in Global Change and Social Learning Systems has been working with UNESCO on an initiative to strengthen teachers’ capacity for engaging with sustainability across southern Africa.

Amanzi for Food Training of Trainers course participants graduate!

A recent graduation ceremony hosted at the ELRC honoured participants that completed the Amanzi for Food Training of Trainers course and therefore received NQF 5/6 certification. It was a proud and joyous occasion for this group of dedicated participants.

Panel Discussion on Ethical Principles in Relation to Climate Change

An interesting new development in responding to climate change is UNESCO’s Declaration on Ethical Principles in Relation to Climate Change. Educational approaches to climate change ethics formed the focus of a panel discussion convened by UNESCO at the recently held 6th International Conference on Ethics Education in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
