Going Green Project – 2023 Webinar, Q&A Meeting

Dear Teachers,

We are excited to see the progress of this year’s Going Green project, and we are impressed by the innovative ideas and action plans that students have been developing since the start of the project. However, for this school year, we understand that some teachers may have joined the project later than others, which is why we have decided to extend the deadline to June 9th, 2023.

This will provide ample time for all participants to finalize their actions, submit their entries, and have a chance to win the Going Green School Competition. We encourage all teachers and students to take advantage of this extension and submit action plans by the new deadline.

Our Teach About U.S. team is also thrilled to introduce our latest updates, featuring new modules and activities that will inspire and challenge your students in new ways. To celebrate these updates, we are hosting a special webinar under the auspices of Leuphana’s Kompetenzzentrum für regionale Lehrkräftefortbildung Lüneburg on Tuesday 6 June 2023 starting from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., and we want you to join us! During this webinar, we’ll walk you through the new modules and show you how to integrate them in your lesson plans. You’ll also have the chance to ask any questions you may have about the project, its updates and classroom implementation.
