Helping ELT professionals embrace awareness, critical thinking, and action around sustainability is the key focus of this ETAS group. Education is an essential factor in addressing climate change accordin to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The Sustainability SIG has two main objectives:

  1. to support and facilitate the efforts of English teachers in Switzerland to incorporate topics and critical reflection related to the climate emergency in their language classrooms by sharing and promoting creative and relevant resources, ideas, and approaches.
  2. to guide ETAS as an association as it aims to reduce the carbon footprint of its activities and mitigate the effects of climate crisis on its members.
