As students head back to school, are you ready for the ‘Greta Effect?’
Children and youth all around the world have been striking and marching, wanting their voices to be heard on the urgent need to take climate action.
Even before Greta’s impact, young people who were questioned as part of the MASDAR Youth Survey 2016 identified ‘climate change as the biggest threat to the world in the next decade.’
The young people that I know and work with in my learn to move mountains® innovation and entrepreneurship activities, are really incredible with the speed at which they dream big.
I know that you need practical ways to take action, which integrate sustainability into curricula, increase wellbeing and build ‘future of work’ skills; and learn to move mountains® is built around those elements.
I’ve taken my proven approach of engaging young people through Innovation Challenges around the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and created an online workshop - Create Your Innovation Challenge - to train you as educators, librarians and youth advocates in NGOs.
In this 3-hour online training, I give you a complete toolkit for creating an SDG Innovation Challenge to engage children and youth in your community, from 8 – 18 years, regardless of academic ability.
When you create an SDG Innovation Challenge, you make a space for every child to show-up with their unique imagination and creativity, build core skills, connect them to a sense of purpose and have a starting point to turn ideas into real action in your community.
The next training takes place online on Thursday 19th September 18.00h – 21.00h CEST. Find out more about it here and book your place.
If you want to hear more about why SDG Innovation Challenges matter before you sign up, how the training will work for you and what you’ll be putting in place, then I’ll be running a FREE 30-min webinar on Tuesday 27th August 14.00h -14.30h CEST. Click here to register for the FREE webinar.
I am really excited to be sharing this training with you. I have worked in social change for 25 years and integrated my expertise on problem-solving for sustainability and sustainable development into education settings since 2011 with curricula, workshops and service-learning strategies. I also continue to work with leaders and entrepreneurs to imagine sustainability solutions, design them around flourishing of people and planet and build the resilience for the journey of turning ideas into real projects.
learn to move mountains® innovation and entrepreneurship activities are designed to engage young people, as the new generation of problem-solvers for the planet. As well as the online training, I come to your sites to deliver learn to move mountains® workshops and challenges directly with your young people.
I also run Youth Entrepreneurship Workshops in partnership with the United Nations Conference on Trade & Development (UNCTAD) – Division of Investment & Enterprise (DIAE) team at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.
You can ask me about how both of these options will work for you in your settings. Just drop me an email for an informal discussion.
