Newletter January/February 2023

Dear Teachers,

Happy New Year to you and your students. It has been a while since you last received our newsletter. But we have not been idle. We have added new content to the Going Green – Education for Sustainability curriculum and hope you will try out soon.

Below you’ll also find information about several events organized by the U.S. Embassy, one directly related to Going Green and the other two of interest to the English language classroom.

KIND REMINDER!

The deadline for submitting action plans is May 26, 2023

We wish the best of luck to all students for the competition and we are excited to see their brilliant ideas take shape.
