This publication shares the experience of the VAMOS Project consortium addressing the question of how to foster education for sustainable development. It gives an overview through a collection of Virtual Exchange Case Studies on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) co-created by the partner universities.
As a bottom-up initiative and having as a pedagogical-methodological pathway a co-creation process, this project has enabled teachers and students to collaborate together across geographical divides making use of the latest technology to benefit from peer-to-peer learning as well as deepening and broadening local knowledge and elevating it to an international level.
Sustainability issues, and – in particular – the concept of “wicked problems”, underscore the critical role of international collaboration at the frontier of education. In this collection we share our understanding that critical VE is here to stay and the alignment of the UN’s SDGs plays an important role in creating a sustainable future.
The VAMOS Project team hopes the reader will learn more about our activities and their potential impact on the partner universities involved in the project. We trust this material is as inspiring for you as VAMOS has been for each of its members in continuing the work for education that has sustainability at its heart.
We invite our readers to discover our publication that – in true VE spirit – is a genuine co-creation: “Teaching and Learning for the Future: A collection of VAMOS Project Virtual Exchange Case Studies on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”.
LET’S GO, VAMOS!
