The Miner Anderson Family Foundation and Global Education at Kennesaw State University are pleased to announce the 2023 Education for Sustainability and Human Rights Program. Inspired by the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 2030 Framework of Education for Sustainable Development, the seminars will foster dialogue among educators regarding linkages between global and local topics. Ultimately, the seminars aim to build a platform towards collaboration, curriculum development, and instruction for authentic student learning; so that young citizens may acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable lifestyles, cultural diversity, gender equality, and a culture of peace and non-violence through principles of human rights.

Our hope is by the end of the week, participants will authentically examine and integrate Human Rights as well as Sustainable Development issues & initiatives in their student's educational experiences. 

A $300 stipend is included for all participants.

During this 6-day program, you will:

  • Learn about the UN's Sustainable Development Goals
  • Gain a deep understanding of the main principles in human rights education
  • Explore the attributes of global citizenship
  • Work with fellow teachers to develop ideas on how to implement these values in the classroom
  • Visit Atlanta's Martin Luther King Jr. Center and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights
