New teaching material on intergenerational justice and sustainability
Sustainability and intergenerational justice are powerful concepts that have become buzzwords in the social discussion. Often they are used questionably quickly without it being clear by which standard they were evaluated and what is fundamentally hidden behind the term. It should be noted that both generational justice and sustainability are significantly more complex concepts than consumers, citizens and voters are repeatedly taught.
The new competence-oriented teaching material of the web platform Wandel vernetzt denken deals with the basics, measures and applications of sustainability and generational justice – and is available for free download.
The teaching material can be used in subjects such as social studies, politics, economics, geography, ethics and religion. The target group is schoolchildren from the 9th and 10th grade (middle and upper school). The topic unit is not only convincing because of its comprehensive approach and high quality of content and didactics. With the inclusion of intergenerational justice, it fills a large gap in the range of teaching material.
