In 2015 the United Nations agreed on the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, with the objective of enabling people to live in dignity everywhere in the world. The 2030 Agenda embraces the economic, environmental, and social dimensions of development, and in this context, enabling high-quality education is essential: It empowers individuals and communities to act responsibly as global citizens in a global society. Therefore, future teachers will play a vital role when it comes to implementing the 17 SDGs and preparing younger generations for the challenges in an ever-changing world.

Our 2022 Summer School at the University of Potsdam is designed to raise awareness for the importance of Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship. International lecturers from institutions in Europe, Australia, Colombia, India, and the US will bring in a variety of expertise, disciplines and perspectives. Four subject-specific Study Groups will be complemented by interdisciplinary learning opportunities as well as a cultural program in Potsdam and neighboring Berlin.

The Summer School connects up to 60 future teachers from different disciplines studying at six European and one US-American university as well as PhD students from the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education in India. Participating students will be nominated by lecturers at their home university.
