Welcome to the Eco-Schools International newsletter for April 2016.
Did you know that this week is Climate Education Week? Check out
the Climate Education Week Toolkit that Earth Day Network has provided,
and have inspiration for activities that can be carried out throughout
the whole year.
An International Conference about Education for Sustainable
Development will be held in Ahmedabad, India, in September.
It will be a wonderful opportunity to share experiences about
engaging youth and children in EE/ESD. For more information about
the Paper submission procedure, please check the link below.
A teacher from Palestine, Hanan Al Hroub, was awarded the Global Teacher Prize 2016, but the Top Ten Finalists are quite a varied representation of outstanding teachers from around the world. Last but not least read about an Eco-School in New Jersey, USA which was visited by the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
