On 13-16 May, in Krzyżowa, the second Learning Teaching Training Activity took place - a seminar for educators and multipliers within the framework of the strategic partnership on education for sustainable development and post-growth.
During the seminar, participants tried to answer the question why cultural sensitivity in education for social-ecological transformation matters. The first outline of a manual to be produced by the project was also presented. There were also sessions led by the project team, and seminar participants were invited to co-create an open space session.

Originally planned for Prague, the transnational meeting in our strategic partnership PartESDD (Partnership for Education for Sustainable Development and Degrowth Education) finally had to be held online. Together with the representatives of our partner organisations from the Czech Republic and Germany, we devoted two days to project management: we clarified formalities and financial matters, adjusted timetables, looked ahead to upcoming project activities and reflected on our cooperation. And a few sweet winter treats could also be "shared" on the screen.
During the meeting, the Krzyżowa Foundation was represented by: Agnieszka Duduś from the International Youth Meeting Centre and Anna Dankowska - a freelancer cooperating with the Krzyżowa Foundation in the field of ecology.

At the beginning of October, in Prague, a meeting of the partners of the project PartESDD (PartESDD- Partnership for Education for sustainable development and Degrowth Education) took place. The project, which was initiated at the end of 2020, assumes substantive cooperation with organisations from Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany. The exchange of experiences and ideas between the partners is intended to support education for social and ecological transformation in the respective countries. Thematic educational materials will be developed jointly, with an emphasis on intercultural aspects.
It was precisely this aspect of education that the meeting in the Czech capital was devoted to. Its first part, conducted in an online form, provided theoretical foundations for issues related to teaching and training. In Prague, educators from the Czech Republic, Poland and Germany exchanged concrete experiences. The result of this work was a 'toolkit', which is the starting point for our joint work on the first Czech methodology handbook on education for sustainable development!

In February, the first part (online) of the meeting planned for May in Krzyżowa took place. It was a seminar devoted to Cultural aspects in education for a socio-ecological transformation.
During our Czech-Polish-German seminar we raised some questions e.g. how can aspects of diversity such as language, socio-historic or economic background, age, gender, education, ethnic or urban/rural backgrounds influence our understanding of / openness towards a socio-ecological change? And how educators should be aware of and deal with in this field of work?
We used a mix of methods, including the sharing of experiences, brainstorming sessions, inputs.
Thank you: Ekumenická akademie, and the Kreisau- Inititative e.V. for fruitful cooperation, and the Erasmus+ programme for funding.
