Teachers from across Scotland will work in virtual pairs to deliver primary-level activities to keep young people in the country engaged in education from home.
Stewart Clelland was due to be part of the GLP 2020 cohort. He said:
“’It has been incredibly rewarding to know that I can still reach out and help. When we speak of a more sustainable world, we mean in the societal, as well as the environmental sense. By taking part, I am helping enable and support Ugandan learners, educators, schools, and their wider communities to build a socially-just, sustainable and equitable society.
“For me, as an RMPS teacher, this is paramount – regardless of the challenges Covid-19 presents. Learning for Sustainability (LfS) is all about making connections – between different people and their environments. Despite the challenges, I hope that my continued involvement in this project will do just that. and help better prepare me for how this will all be possible in an increasingly uncertain future.”
The lesson plans will be developed by REE’s team of teacher trainers in Uganda will record the sessions.
