Context of the Multiplier event
“Education for Sustainable Consumption (ESC) aims at providing knowledge, values and skills to enable individuals and social groups to become actors of change towards more sustainable consumption behaviors” (http://drustage.unep.org).
Improving Education for Sustainable Consumption and Production in the context of professional Home Economics fields is the aim of the ERASMUS+ Project “ProfESus”, which started in October 2016.
The task for teachers, to promote a sustainable mind set, is very challenging. All related dimensions of the teaching process such as sustainable consumption, professional demands in Home Economics businesses as well as the special expertise in education for sustainable consumption including related competences, methods and tools require
insights in current findings of different theories, results from former projects and current standards.
We would like to invite all experts and interested persons working in the field of teacher trainings such as related to household and guest orientated business or in home economics education, in vocational training, in education for hospitality management, in consumer education as well as in education for sustainable consumption and production etc.
Aims of the meeting
At the multiplier event the key aim is to define the chances and challenges for implementing a sustainable mind set through vocational education in household and guest orientated businesses. In addition the participants will discuss and determine indicators for a sustainable mindset.
Based on current education theories and new approaches for lesson planning the developed lesson planning template of the ProfEsus project will be evaluated. At last the innovative teacher training will be presented and recommendations for improvements will be discussed.
