We would like to update you on two important dates regarding this year’s Going Green project.
1. Going Green competition ends on May 26, 2019
Submit your action plans for the Going Green project and your videos for the project week Power to the People no later than Sunday, May 26, at midnight. If you need assistance with uploading the project to the Teach About U.S. platform or have any unresolved issues, please get in touch with us. See below for more detailed information from our last newsletter. This year, 58 courses have registered for the project and we look forward to reviewing the outcomes of your efforts very soon!
2. Going Green at Humboldt University’s Sommerfest on August 29, 2019
In lieu of a final student conference, we invite all project participants, regardless if you upload a final product or not, to join us for the Sommerfest at Humboldt Universität Berlin on August 29, 2019, 14-15:30h. During the event, student groups will have the opportunity to report about their experiences with the project in a casual atmosphere and discuss their action plans with peers and experts on sustainability. Prof. Marcel Robischon, Humboldt University, will moderate the session, and Prof. Torben Schmidt, Leuphana University, a member of the Teach About U.S. team, will give a brief introduction.
What if your students did not submit an action plan this year?
This is no problem at all. This is not going to be a typical award ceremony, but an open forum for current and former project participants, or those who plan to take part in the project next school year.
Do you want to attend the event?
Please RSVP with Joannis Kaliampos (firstname.lastname@example.org) by June 7, 2019. Please suggest how many student delegates you would like to bring to the event. (We will be able to determine how many students can be accepted after the registration period.)
Unfortunately, Teach About U.S. cannot cover travel expenses for this event.
