New online workshop for educators created by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and International BaccalaureateOctober 26, 2017
A new online workshop, Exploring a ‘sustainable’ future: Concepts, principles and practices across disciplinary boundaries has been produced in collaboration with the Foundation's education partner, the International Baccalaureate (IB). This interdisciplinary course takes a broad conceptual look at the social, economic, and environmental factors affecting long-term development.
The workshop provides a collaborative platform for exploring a variety of tools and frameworks, including the circular economy and systems thinking, as a means of addressing global as well as local challenges. The course will run for four weeks from the 22nd November - 20th December 2017, and is designed for IB educators of Diploma (DP) and Career-related (CP) Programmes, as well as non-IB educators.
The IB works together with the Foundation on curriculum innovation projects, exploring the importance of project-based, interdisciplinary methods that enable learners to consider the interconnectedness of our increasingly complex world.

“The circular economy is gaining traction as a tangible proposition for an economy that can work in the long-term. With support from innovative, world-leading educational institutions, the full potential of this opportunity can be realised. This professional development workshop from the IB, supported by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, is an important step on the journey towards a restorative and regenerative economy.”
