Workshop offers for schools
We draw on the experience of over 150 successfully implemented school workshops. We currently offer various workshop modules in the form of project days. The offer thematizes social and ecological aspects of education for sustainable development. The focus is on issues such as global migration dynamics and their causes or climate sensitivity and environmental protection. All approaches are essentially designed as competence-oriented project lessons.
"The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals"
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations came into force on January 1, 2016. Everyone is called upon to contribute to the achievement of these goals. The goal to ensure a more sustainable and thus social, ecological and economic development by 2030 is a great opportunity, especially for the young generation, to creatively shape the world of tomorrow. The workshop creates understanding for the diversity of the goals and shows possibilities how one can participate in the fulfillment of the SDGs. On a large scale as well as on a small scale.
"Future eats smart"
We take daily eating and drinking for granted. In this exciting workshop, we will work with the participants to reflect on their own eating habits. What impact does my diet have on global environmental and climate developments? What alternatives are there? What can I use as a guideline when shopping? The workshop informs, strengthens the willingness to take responsibility, gives confidence to act and shows own self-efficacy.
Sustainability is on everyone’s lips. But what is it anyway and what do we have to do with it in concrete terms? Sure, everyone wants to leave an intact environment for their children’s and grandchildren’s generation and would do anything to guarantee this. But why don’t we act like that? Sustainability and the effects of our (non)actions are far too abstract and we freeze before the challenge. The basis for change is understanding and knowledge about alternatives and possibilities of influence. We want to show that everyone can become effective and shape the future.
"What about climate change?"
Climate change is the challenge of our time. The young generation is taking its demands to the streets with Fridays for Future. But what exactly is climate change? What is the current situation and what does 1.5 or 4 degrees more even mean? And what do I have to do with it in concrete terms? The workshop aims to provide answers to these questions and to show that, as justified as the urgency of the issue is, there are always opportunities in problems. In addition, we want to show that everyone can become effective and shape the future. All that is needed is knowledge, courage and motivation.
"GreenTeam program for schools"
There are many opportunities to directly experience sustainable behavior in everyday school life. With this workshop, we would like to sensitize students to climate issues and at the same time demonstrate their own self-efficacy in developing ideas and implementation plans for creating a more sustainable everyday school life. Students will learn how to identify areas for action and creatively develop and implement alternative ideas. We also want to show a process of how new ideas can be implemented.
"Climate and Flight"
Climate change is the global challenge of our time. What do the changes mean for living spaces, especially in the global south? How are global economic interrelationships shaped and what impact does our lifestyle have? In this workshop we would like to work out with the participants what climate change actually is, what effects it has and why this challenge can only be solved globally.
"Flight and Asylum"
On the subject of flight and asylum, there is often superficial knowledge and few concrete, personal experiences. What is asylum? Why and from where do people flee? How does an asylum procedure work in Germany? These and many other questions will be explored in one day. The workshop creates space in which information is conveyed and the participants’ fears and prejudices are discussed and reflected upon.
