Starting signal for a sustainable and therefore future-proof school
In the group’s first meeting, goals and visions were collected and the sustainable current state of our school was determined. The result at this point is probably better than expected: Our school uses copy paper that has the highest possible sustainability value, fair trade balls are used in sports lessons and the coffee in the staff rooms is produced fairly and ecologically, to name just a few examples. Nevertheless, the working group has identified goals that are on the participants' "wish list". Keywords such as waste separation, paper avoidance through digitalization and reducing the use of paper towels in the toilets were mentioned. But again, these are just examples.
"Learning locations develop their full innovative power when they work holistically - that means taking a 360-degree view of sustainability."(https://www.unesco.de/node/6100)
Education for Sustainable Development is therefore not only a cross-cutting topic in the classroom, but also the learning processes and methods of all those involved in school are geared towards education for sustainability: This is known as the Whole School Approach!
With this in mind, the ESD working group is highly motivated and welcomes ideas and commitment of all kinds - participation and imitation are always welcome!
The ESD-AG will meet on the following dates this semester and is looking forward to welcoming more teachers and pupils who would like to join the team. If you are interested, simply send us an email: email@example.com

Your ESD Team
Introducing DN AG
DN? What’s that? DN stands for Diversity Network. The DN - just like the ESD AG - is dedicated to implementing the United Nations 2030 Agenda from 2015 - the 17 sustainability goals. However, the DN focuses on the social dimension of the 17 goals. The permanent core of the working group currently consists of six teachers who are in close contact with the two liaison teachers at our school and the pupil representatives to be able to directly address concerns from pupils and all school employees. After a discovery and sorting phase, the group has now taken up specific ideas and concerns. For example, the feedback system los.werden has recently been established for everyone involved in the school. The launch of a school account on Instagram was also initiated by DN and implemented by teachers who are enthusiastic about social networking (so if you want to be up to date but haven't signed up yet: Download Instagram and follow rbzamkoenigsweg.kiel). Various action days are also being planned to draw attention to important issues. These include Anne Frank Day in June and the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women in November. We are also working on the transparency of the many different areas of responsibility and their contact persons at our school to quickly and easily identify the right contact person for every concern for everyone involved in the school. In doing so, we hope to create more space for encounters with one another. This also applies to our work: Participation and imitation is absolutely encouraged! You can reach us at any time via Vielfaltsnetzwerk@rbz-koenigsweg.org
We look forward to many ideas!
