Azores, Preserving Nature: Teaching sustainability skills

6 Days

Neuza Salvador

This course has been created for teachers who want to have an effective approach to nature and sustainability education with innovative 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 sustainable skills about the best way to preserve nature it's the main point of this course and for that we are going to learn how to teach others, every day, doing 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, understand and instruct what we can do to help them.


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, in different places and times.
