I’m currently participating in the course Language Teaching for the Planet on using environmental topics in English language lessons created by Owain Llewellyn, who has been sharing his environment-themed lessons on his blog ELT Sustainable since 2012. It’s a very manageable course as it only lasts 15 days and doesn’t take more than two—three hours per week, unless one feels the need to engage more in the tasks and discussions, which can easily happen as they’ve been very interesting.
If you’re thinking of ‘bringing in topics of sustainability to your teaching‘ and would like to discuss ideas with like-minded colleagues and get feedback, I’d recommend it. It is helping me think through some of my ideas and has added to the motivation for me to finally start writing on this topic here on my blog.
The course will run again in January.
And here’s my certificate!

The moderators had the idea to make the lesson plans the participants wrote into a free resource pack for teachers, which you can download here on the ELTsustainable website.
