A gathering of the ANGEL SIG on Teacher Education.

Theme: S-Cool-Links: Uniting teachers for climate action. With Asmita Rajaram - VVOB (Belgium)

ANGEL MeeTEing Point is a new series of online gatherings of ANGEL's Special Interest Group on Teacher Education, designed to bring the community together to discuss pertinent issues for all those with an interest in Teacher Education on topics relating to Global Education & Learning. 

This second such meeting (following one in January) will be held online on the 14 April 2023, 14:00-15:00 (GMT), on the theme: S-Cool-Links: Uniting teachers for climate action.


Description of the session

VVOB – education for development (Belgium) founded the S-Cool-Links platform to connect teachers worldwide who wish to take climate education to their classrooms. The platform hosts a global teacher community of practice and aims to achieve teacher professional development in the area of climate change education, mainly through peer learning and project-based learning. This global exchange is based on the strong belief that any response to a global crisis requires global perspectives to be taken into account. Allowing teachers from different parts of the world to bring in their local ideas, experiences and indigenous knowledge, S-Cool-Links enables them to enrich their collaborative school climate projects even more.

VVOB is a non-profit organisation founded in 1982 which aims to achieve quality education through capacity development of education actors, governmental or otherwise, and by connecting education stakeholders across borders.




With this presentation we aim to reach more teachers internationally (through organizations active in the field) and potential international synergy partners.
