Dear Teachers,

Some of you are, no doubt, getting ready for the new school year, others are enjoying the summer break for a bit longer. In any case, Going Green 2022/2023 is ready for you on TeachAboutUS.org.

A NEW MODULE

As announced in our last newsletter in June, we have designed a new teaching module for the Going Green – Education for Sustainability project. To the modules “Plastic & Recycling”, Green Cities / Mobility”, “Food” and “Fashion”, we have added “Youth Participation - Sustainability.” The module seeks to inspire students to become active participants in promoting sustainability goals in their school and communities.
