Azores Mission: How to teach to preserve life on the planet

6 Days

Neuza Salvador

This course has been created for teachers who want to teach others about life on the planet and who we can still preserve it. Also nature and sustainability will be together with us this week, during indoor and outdoor learning practices. 


The participants will start the journey in one of the most beautiful places in the world - São Miguel Island on the archipelago of the Azores. This archipelago it's formed by 9 volcanic islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and has recently received Silver status of international certification as a first archipelago sustainable destination in the world. 


Teaching how to preserve life on the planet it's very important in the present, because we  need all the forms of life together for us to live. To  learn this, we are going to do some experiences alone, in groups with cooperation, sharing knowledge, fun and respect. We are also going to be in contact with wildlife, nature and people to observe, and understand the best points to preserve nature/life.


Participants will leave the course full of knowledge on how to make the learning process easier and more interesting based on the factors of mindfulness and positive education skills about preserving nature and life, in different places and times.
