Tanzania: ONE EARTH - ONE ISLE: The Torquoise Change TTC

What is at issue:

The Turquoise Change (TTC) is an ESD project, founded in November 2016 in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands (ANI), India by the ESD Expert Net Members Supirya Singh and Katarina Roncevic. The initiative aims at promoting a multi‐stakeholder, multi‐disciplinary and multi‐cultural dialogue and action on advancing sustainable thinking and lifestyles in schools on islands supporting small communities.

The purpose of the ToT was to build the capabilities of schools – students, teachers and principals as well as the local communities, youth and local NGOs to work towards the preservation, comprehension and celebration of the local environment. The Turquoise Change uses the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Whole School Approach as overarching frameworks for its work in the islands.

What's happening now:

The five-day Turquoise Change Training Workshop on ESD took place at the beginning of July 2018 in Zanzibar. The workshop was based on the book "Teaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's)", which has already been successfully used by TTC and is linked to the concepts and resources of the material development group Expert-Net. This includes experimenting with learning systems and Nexus materials on water, food and energy. Against the background of the participants' teacher training, the focus was on systemic learning with a focus on water.
