We are currently starting Week 7 of our first Leadership, Sustainability, and Ethics Youth course of the year. This 10-week online course is offered four times a year in English in Spanish for youth between the ages of 18-35 covering topics such as Leadership, Sustainability, Ecoliteracy, Systems Thinking, Ethics, Facilitation, and the Earth Charter. This programme is one of Earth Charter International´s commitments to the UNESCO Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development.
In this particular course we have 21 participants from 15 different countries across Latin America, the US, Africa, and Europe. The diversity of the participants is what makes the course even more enriching. Participants are expected to complete the course by implementing a workshop in their own communities touching on one of the topics covered in the course. Earth Charter Young Leaders Mary Katherine Belknap from the US and Jose Ignacio Fernándo Víquez from Costa Rica are helping to co-facilitate this course with Earth Charter Youth Projects Coordinator, Christine Lacayo.
Our next online youth training programme will be in Spanish and will begin on 9 April 2018 with a deadline to apply by 19 March!
