World Environmental Education Congress 2015

Johanna presented the project "Go Global Garden" together with her colleagues from the ESD Expert Net - Maria Ocampo Garcia from Mexico and Thamsanqa Nkosi from South Africa - at the World Environmental Education Congress (WEEC) 2015 in Sweden. The international platform links research on environmental education/ Education for sustainable development and people working in the field in concrete projects and programs. In this tradition the 8th meeting from 29th June to 2nd July worked with the focus on linking environmental (planet) with social, economical and cultural aspects of development (people).

The idea of the project "Go Global Garden" is to bring schoolgardens in Germany, Mexico and South Africa via videos and virtual meetings together and to get from the local gardening to a global learning. Our kids from the GemüseAckerdemie at the Evangelische Schule Berlin Zentrum participate in this innovative project.
