Module 2: Developing and delivering lessons with a sustainability focus 

This module will help you develop and deliver lessons that integrate climate change issues into your teaching practice as part of your current curriculum and moving beyond traditional coursebook environment units. It's aimed at providing you with a principled approach to bringing sustainability into any classroom topic as well as helping you to recognise and overcome the barriers that can prevent teachers from doing this.

Module 3: Making sustainability part of your learners' lives

This module is focussed on language learning and climate action beyond the classroom. It’s aimed at helping you develop projects, through which your students can use climate related language relevant to their context and participate in community action aimed at tackling the environmental crisis. You’ll learn how to design, manage and evaluate learner-centred projects which enable your students to act and make a meaningful difference.
