TEESNet Conference 2020: Education as a Pedagogy of Hope and Possibility.

ANGEL members based in the UK should consider getting involved in this key event, organised by TEESNet (Teacher Education for Equity and Sustainability Network), which "aims to develop a UK wide community of practice in Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship within teacher education in higher education and schools, that shares research and practice to develop new understanding across the sector in the UK and beyond."

This year, the 12th annual TEESNet conference takes as it's title: ‘Education as a Pedagogy of Hope and Possibility: The Role of Teacher Education in Leading Narratives of Change’, and aims to "provoke exploration of, and address responses to, global challenges and the ways in which these challenges suggest different approaches or narratives."

"For some, there is an urgent need to recognise these challenges in terms of crisis and catastrophe, and to prepare for significant uncertainty, change and ‘deep adaptation’. For others, the emphasis is on cultivating a sense of hope and empowerment, especially amongst young people. Between these two is growing recognition of the need to shift from individual to collective responses, engage critically with our responsibilities towards each other and the planet, and foster creativity in imagining and adapting to new possibilities for human existence. TEESNet 2020 seeks to address the pivotal role of teacher education in promoting collective, critical and creative responses."

Early bird tickets available until the end of June.
