Week-long Training courses on ESD

The time of year has arrived for the Erasmus+ KA1 applications. This year MEdIES offers three courses on 3 topics:

Marine Litter Education. Sun 4 October – Sat 10 October 2020. The course aims to build trainees’ skills in delivering meaningful education interventions on the issue of marine litter, using experiential, learner-centered training methods.
Animation in Education. Sun 8 November 2020 – Sat 14 November 2020 . This course is the product of collaborative work of the past six years. Since 2014 more than 250 formal and non-formal educators were trained on the use of short-video animation on ESD projects.
Education for Alternative Water Resources. Sun 24 January – Sat 30 January 2021. The course aims to enhance the professional development of formal and non-formal educators on non-conventional water resources. It capitalizes on our 10-yr experience having trained ~5000 educators!

All courses are eligible for an EU ERASMUS+ KA1 grant to support the trainees’ participation coming from the EU. Deadline for Erasmus+ KA1 application: 05/02/2020.
Training courses on ESD themes for teachers and adult education staff 100% fundable by Erasmus plus KA1.

MEdIES runs week-long training courses on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) for formal and non-formal educators from European countries and beyond.

The courses combine short theory sessions with many workshops, visits, hands-on, and co-creative group-work sessions. They all start from a common “core” instruction with the principles of ‘Education for Sustainable Development’, in light of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS), followed by a different focus-theme.
The indoor sessions are held in the premises of MIO-ECSDE, in the historical centre of Athens, while the outdoor sessions and visits take place in and around the city of Athens.

The tuition fee for the week-long training (for MIO-ECSDE / MEdIES) is 490 Euro. The total cost (tuition fee, travel, accommodation and subsistence), depending on the country of origin can range between 1300 and 1800 EURO. These costs are eligible to be 100% funded by the Erasmus+ programme, notably under Key Action 1 (KA1 – mobility projects for staff of school education and adult education).
