After facilitating two courses of the Zero Waste Educator Training in 2019, we would like to bring you all on the journey of learning how to live our lives sustainably. Sustainability means living in harmony with our environment and ensuring that future generations can live in healthy and safe conditions too. Learning about sustainability can seem like a daunting challenge but it doesn’t have to be! If you’re interested to learn about sustainability in a fun and creative environment and want to explore how you can start making a change in your everyday life and in your community, this course is for you!

This course is suitable for absolute beginners in this area as well as people with advanced knowledge. We’re all together on this journey towards sustainability, and we’ll share our skills and knowledge as we go along. This journey is about all of us working together to make change happen!

At the end of the course you’ll have a good understanding of what sustainability means, what climate change is and the actions we can take individually and collectively to make a positive change and be part of the solution. You’ll develop a sustainability vision for your community and will get tools and ideas on how to start making a change.

We will explore the following questions through multimedia content, creative activities, games and group discussions

  • What is Sustainability?
  • What is Climate Change?
  • What are the UN Sustainable Development Goals?
  • How can we protect the environment?
  • How can we live a healthy and happy life in harmony with the planet?
  • What actions can we take to reduce our energy consumption?
  • How can we use less plastic and other materials?
  • What does it take to create a peaceful and just society on Earth?
