Teacher Training Courses
During the project, we carried out the "Global Teacher Academy" teacher training activity to support primary school teachers in integrating the climate curriculum into the school curriculum.
Teachers from each participating country who completed this training carried out "Teacher Training" activities for teachers working in their own schools.
These trainings were supported by the project partner LeedsDEC and SerGED experts.
