Spica 2023: Sustaining Remote Communities: Finding Enduring Ways to Flourish
The Spica network uses local Nordic contexts to explore global challenges and to strengthen internationalisation and international cooperation in the Nordic countries. In March 2023 the Spica course will take place in the Faroe Islands. Taking our point of departure in both Agenda 2030 and local Faroese contexts, we will explore how teacher education and schools can be part of building inclusive, safe and robust local communities by focusing on environmental, economic, cultural and social aspects of sustainability. The course is relevant for anyone who is interested in the future of education.
The intensive course will take place in the Faroe Islands on 10-17 March 2022. The course awards 5 ECTS credits and is funded by Nordplus (the Nordic Council). The course consists of two online seminars and related activities, a week-long intensive course and a reflection paper. Participants will receive a travel grant that covers the cheapest mode of travel but no more than the maximum Nordplus rates. Lodging and most meals will be covered by Spica during the intensive week.
