Turn your classroom into a world to be explored and let us be your compass.
Our Mission, Your Adventure
Turn your classroom into a world of exploration
Sustainability is a curriculum requirement country-wide, but teachers are often held responsible for learning about it and finding their own classroom activities to engage their students with the topic.
The mission at Virescent Education:
Empower teachers by providing structured resources and training on how to teach sustainability in an engaging way through the lens of the United Nations Global Goals.
“Since today’s youth will be the inheritors of the success or failure of Sustainable Development Goals, their ownership and commitment to the goals will be critical to success. For this to be so, they must be taught to embrace the 17 goals as fundamental to their future well-being and sustainability”.
-Peter Thompson, President of the General Assembly of the
United Nations, November 2016
"Success is not a destination, it's a journey"
- Zig Ziglar
We will be your guiding compass in this exciting journey through a 2-part workshop.
Part 1: Engage and Explore
You will be teamed up with other educators and will collaborate with one another, learn about the UN Global Goals, clarify misconceptions of our world today, and discuss sustainable life choices, all through our engaging gamification approach... Save Terra!
Part 2: Take A.C.T.I.O.N.
Learn tips and tricks on how to facilitate Save Terra in your own learning environment and dive into the A.C.T.I.O.N. method! This approach to exploring sustainability opens the door of opportunity for your students to apply their creativity and critical thinking skills.
By the end of the workshop, you will walk away with a package of innovative, well-structured resources that you can apply to your classroom immediately, and the confidence to do so!
Teacher PD Workshops are flexible enough to accommodate a variety of needs, but it is recommended that one full day is dedicated to this experience.
"I believe, in order to make a true exponential impact towards a better world, teachers are key. They are at the forefront of enlightening future generations of the possibilities they have when they become citizens. Therefore, a true investment must be made to ensure all educators are provided support, resources, and encouragement throughout this journey."
-Amanda Kramer, founder of Virescent Education
