Event Date: 07/12/2021 16:00 - 17:00

Hot off the heels of COP26, SCILT, in partnership with Falkirk Council, will be hosting an online event to launch an exciting cross-channel collaborative venture with l’Académie de Créteil in France, promoting Learning for Sustainability with French in the primary school.

The event will take place on MS Teams on Tuesday 7 December at 4pm – 5pm and will feature a short film to showcase examples of the work that Falkirk schools have accomplished previously on this topic, including comments from all partners involved. There will be a Q&A session where participants will have the opportunity to chat with colleagues in Falkirk, who will be involved in this project. This event is open to primary school teachers and SLT members, Development Officers and QIOs.

This collaborative venture, postponed from last year due to the pandemic, aims to explore the importance of Learning for Sustainability within the curriculum in which languages can play a significant part, both in Scotland and France. It will focus on pupils aged 9-11 in schools across both countries where they will have the opportunity to develop their linguistic skills in the target language through the lens of Learning for Sustainability.
