WES Regional Training on Educating for Sustainable Development with focus on Waste Water Treatment for reuse and Non-Conventional Water Resources
Educating for Sustainable Development (ESD) is an interdisciplinary system, process and form of education, that is acknowledged as essential in reaching all Sustainable Development Goals. Focusing on the provision of water education, is a necessary and powerful management tool for the achievement of water security and sustainable development.
The EU funded WES project is organising a regional activity HE-3-REG to provide technical assistance and strengthen the capacities of the WES Partner Countries to effectively implement Water related Education for Sustainable Development with emphasis on water reuse after appropriate Waste Water Treatment (WWT) and other Non-Conventional Water Resources (NCWRs).
The on-line training will consist of two 3-hour webinars:
Webinar 1: Wednesday 23 February 2022
Webinar 2: Wednesday 9 March 2022
Through the training, participants will be enabled to:
- Increase their knowledge and competences in designing and implementing Water related Education for ESD with emphasis on reuse of appropriately treated water deriving from WWT Plants and NCWRs.
- Enhance their capacities to implement learner-centred and participatory ESD didactic approaches relating to water in their own educational contexts.
- Learn about how WWT and NCWRs applications in schools and other institutions, combined with appropriate ESD, can transform the educational institution into a learning lab for sustainability.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
