Action on Global Citizenship for Post Primary Teachers 

This webinar is suitable for Post Primary Teachers of Geography, Civics, Science and Economics, as well as anyone teaching or coordinating Transition Year 

Climate change is an interdisciplinary topic that young people increasingly care about and want to take action on. Action on Global Citizenship engages with the topic from a global citizenship perspective, and explores the science and ethics of climate change. Students are encouraged to ask and answer critical questions about global poverty, justice and equality, and to take action on a local level to develop sustainable communities. We do this with: 

  • A teachers toolkit, packed with exercises to foster awareness, debate, and action projects.
  • Teacher training on the use of the toolkit and on critical themes connected to climate change and global citizenship.
  • In-school workshops.

 This information session will tell you more about our programme, and introduce some effective strategies from our toolkit that you can use instantly in your classes. 

Global Action Plan aims to create sustainable communities across Ireland by empowering people to take practical action for a more sustainable world. Global Action Plan is part of GAP International – a global network of organisations in over 27 countries. By focusing on environmental behaviour change, GAP programmes empower individuals to change their long-term consumption habits with sustainable living tools and programmes.

Alex strongly believes in the power of education to shape a fairer, greener world. He draws on thirteen years' experience in formal and non-formal education to create positive, learner-centred environments that engage and stimulate students and trainees. In 2017-2018, he designed and delivered training for 200 Lebanese teachers in a back-to-school programme for Syrian children, an experience he drew on for his masters thesis in international and comparative education from Stockholm University in 2020. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking and word games.
