The Turquoise Change

Take the best from local & add the best of global

ABOUT US

The Turquoise Change (TTC) is an Education for Sustainable Development project that aims at promoting a multi-stakeholder, multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural dialogue and action on advancing sustainable thinking and lifestyles on islands supporting small communities. It is being implemented in 2016 and will work in Havelock in Andaman and Nicobar Islands (ANI) and in Zanzibar in its pilot phase from November 2016 – July 2018. We developed the program with the aim to translate the SDGs for local communities, extract their relevance for islands and engage youth to take actions towards the future they want.

OUR KEY PROJECT ACTIVITIES

While the key target group for TTC are students, teachers and the larger school community in both the islands, two local organizations are supporting us in our endeavor.

Interactive

Teachers Training

Developing locale-specific, contextual modules for teacher trainings with emphasis on local sustainable environment and research.

Whole School

Approach

Enabling schools to integrate ESD in the curriculum and the overall school development process.

Community

Empowerment

Supporting communities in using local resources  to meet their current needs and global challenges. Community based approaches with strong emphases on schools, NGO, governmental bodies and tourism industry.

Youth

Empowerment

Equip the youth at

islands with the tools to build upon their competencies, skillsets, and values to actively

contribute to a sustainable future.

Coming soon - new Project

We are excited to assist our partner, the NGO Nepada Wildlife, on developing a project on biodiversity with digital learning tools starting in September 2020.

We are developing innovative educational material using digital media and gamification to inform children about the importance of biodiversity in a playful way. Using virtual reality tools, we will offer children and young people emotional access to the global issue of sustainability and encourage teachers to implement these tools.

Education for Sustainable Development

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) aims to equip all learners and educators with the required knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to contribute actively to a sustainable future. ESD promotes critical and system thinking and enables all learners to change behavior towards sustainability and deal with current global challenges.​​ With the increasing global challenges, they now have the added responsibility to translate global complexity to a learner’s life. The best way for schools to cope with this new scenario is to adopt a holistic approach - the Whole School Approach.

Classrooms, where core learnings are meant to happen, need to be supported by the school management, curriculum development, non-formal cooperation, teachers training, parents, governement and students‘ assessment.

The Turquoise Change aims at supporting schools on islands in their individual and very local pursuit to become key change agents to create Islands for Sustainability. We have taken into account the research around islands and developed specific modules for teacher training (Training of Trainers), student activities and curriculum development in a manner that these can be translated into local actions.
