Through its members and member projects, the WG has contributed to the work of the company-wide Working Group Green Education. In 2014, it provided input to a special Green Education session at the FATA, an expert talk organised by the relevant sector departments and to the group’s Product Modul 075-05 Green education. Although there was a slowing down in activities in 2015 due to the closure of member projects and personnel fluctuation, Green Education remains a key enabler for sustainable development. During the recent SNRD Asia and the Pacific/TUEWAS conference in Bangkok in 2016, the previously-established Task Force Green Education has evolved into a Working Group and is now open to members from both TUEWAS and SNRD Asia and the Pacific.
Main issues/topics that the WG is currently focusing on include:
- Positioning the importance, concept, methodologies and formats of Green Education as a joint working group of SNRD Asia and the Pacific and TUEWAS
- Identification and elaboration of new relevant approaches
- Foster learning through life’s experiences and traditional knowledge systems
- Counter narrow conception of rationality with emotional understanding
