19th January 2023
The INTO will host a series of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) webinars for teachers in spring 2023 to support the implementation of Ireland’s second National Strategy – ESD to 2030 in schools across the country. The purpose of the webinar series is to build the capacity of teachers to map the sustainable development goals (SDGs) onto the curriculum and to weave sustainable practices into what they are already teaching in classrooms.
The webinars will be facilitated by teachers and teacher educators who have specific expertise in ESD. The series aims to showcase and celebrate exemplars of quality, excellence and innovation in Education for Sustainable Development across the primary school.
