Peer-to-Peer: Young people explain the SDGs

Communicating Sustainable Development Goals through digital media

In the spirit of a peer-to-peer approach, young people explain and comment on the SDGs using videos they have created themselves. These videos can be used for educational purposes. Reciprocal aspects of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and digitalisation are addressed in this project, which is based in the working group Geography Education at the Institute for Science Education at Leibniz Universität Hannover.

 

Videos for teaching purposes

"Communicating Sustainable Development Goals through Digital Media" is a subproject of the Niedersächsische Länderinitiative (Lower Saxony State Initiative) for the implementation of the Curriculum Framework Education for Sustainable Development. The state initiative was launched in autumn 2018 under the title "Global Change in the Context of Education for Sustainable Development - Lesson Models and Educational Offers for (Prospective) Teachers aiming at Raising Awareness for Societal and Spatial Transformation“.

Qualification of teachers

Headed by Prof. Dr. Christiane Meyer and Dr. Andreas Eberth, various players from all three phases of teacher training are to be networked. The thematic framework is formed by the concept of Global Change, which is intended to contribute to raising awareness for sustainable development. This requires a cultural change or a social transformation in the sense of the vision of the UNESCO World Action Programme.

In addition to the Ministry of Culture of Lower Saxony and the Akademie für Raumforschung und Landesplanung (Academy for Spatial Research and Planning) Hannover, various institutions of the Leibniz Universität Hannover, study seminars, NGOs and schools are involved in the project.
