Gaia Education and Plattform Footprint work on SDGs and Ecological Footprint with Austrian Youth supported by Sinnbildungsstiftung

27 April 2020

To support Austrian students to become ‘Glocalisers’, Gaia Education, in collaboration with our local partner organisation in Austria, Plattform Footprint, has developed a youth-focused training package, which blends Plattform Footprint’s work on Ecological Footprint in schools with Gaia Education’s cutting edge curricula and participatory methodology for sustainable development.

The project includes the adaptation of the SDG Training for Multipliers for young people, including the translation of the SDG Flashcards for a younger audience (and into German), so that they can explore the SDGs within a dynamic, question-focused framework. This is followed by a merger and integration of the Ecological Footprint and SDG training curricula into a dynamic, student-focused and experiential learning experience.

The Youth Glocaliser Workshops are currently organised in a number of high schools and vocational schools for students aged between 12 and 18 years and are being adapted and fine-tuned along the way.

This project was supported by the Sinnbildungsstiftung.
