Azores outdoor: Active Citizenship, Environmental Sustainability, Leadership, and Positive Schooling

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, including environmental, sustainability and positive school activities. This week we will be in 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 offers an immersive experience that equips you with the knowledge and skills to become a positive force for change.


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. We will move beyond simply being a resident and transforming into an involved member of your community. Another important point is the positive school will focus on fostering a growth mindset, collaboration, and well-being, creating an ideal environment for exploration and personal development.


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. Also we will learn about leadership skills in a dynamic and action-oriented setting.
