Welcome to Teaching Sustainability in German and STEM classrooms!

 About the Program

This project unites German and STEM teachers under the umbrella of Sustainability.

It promotes exchange of knowledge, learning from best practice, and working across the curricula. The project gives teacher teams the opportunity to be trained about various sustainability topics (i.e.water, energy, climate, and consumption…) by experts in Germany.

As a part of this program, teachers observe how Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is taught in German schools.

The program is organized by the Goethe-Institut Chicago and is financially supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy through the European Recovery Program.
