Tuesday, 5 January, 2021 - 14:39

Austrian Bildung2030 digital platform pools information on the 2030 Agenda themes.

ANGEL member Susanne Loher, of Südwind, invites members to consult the new Bildung2030 website, which collates resources and materials relevant to teaching surrounding the themes of the UN’s 2030 Agenda, as well as info on training and education for teachers, coaches and instructors in Austria.

The “Bildung2030” Platform

The digital platform “Bildung2030” (Education2030) addresses all those who deal with and support the 17 global Sustainable Development Goals and people who are implementing educational programs with these goals in mind.

The platform pools together information on the 2030 Agenda themes, providing a wide range of suggestions on how global challenges can be addressed for all ages and in different teaching and learning situations. It collects resources and materials for schools and other learning settings from across Austria, and offers an overview of currently available continuing education and training for teachers, coaches and instructors. Specially developed quality criteria are applied when choosing these resources. In addition, in order to contribute to critical and sustainable education, the platform presents various educational concepts, including Global Learning/Global Citizenship Education and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).

The digital platform “Bildung2030” is a collaborative project being undertaken by BAOBAB, FORUM Umweltbildung, KommEnt, Südwind and Welthaus Graz. Its implementation is being funded by the Austrian Development Agency and the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology.
