International Education Week 2021 Series for K-12 Educators: Food, Water, and Sustainability around the World and at Home

November 15, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - November 20, 2021 @ 2:00 pm

The area studies centers at UNC and Duke partner with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to offer globally-focused professional development during International Education Week. International Education Week, held in November annually, is a national week of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education that celebrates the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide.

Virtual: November 15 – 19, 2021 | 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
In Person: November 20, 2021 | 12:00 – 2:00 p.m.

Now more than ever, we live in an interconnected world of limited resources and limitless possibility. In celebration of International Education Week, the Duke-UNC area studies centers and the NC Department of Public Instruction will host a series of events for educators to explore issues related to food, water, and sustainability. Throughout the series, we will explore the interconnectedness of agriculture, water, community health and well-being, culture, sustainable development, and climate.

Each session will highlight content and resources related to a different world region: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa, and Russia. Teachers can attend one session to learn about a specific area, or attend all sessions to gain a broader understanding of our global environment. Attending educators will receive content and resources to equip students with the critical thinking skills and global perspective necessary to solve the sustainability challenges of the future.

Participants will receive a certificate for 1.5 PD hours for each event attended.
