Global Talk #3: Education for Sustainable Development – A navigator for our teaching?
In this Global Talk we gathered educationists from New Zealand, Chile as well as schools and CSOs from the greater Munich area and el mundo students to discuss value-based matters when teaching within the ESD framework. The overall goal was to learn from each other‘s knowledge, our various backgrounds, perspectives and experience.
This Global Talk focused on questions of values in teaching such as the following: Which values are driving our actions? What is our personal and collective "value compass" that navigates our personal and/or educational decision-making? What is important for us? But also: How much do our values show in our teaching? How strong is the overlap? Where are and should be limits to value-based teaching? What are boundaries?
