Sustainability in Design and Technology

The Design and Technology Association have worked with Engineers Without Borders and Practical Action to develop three fully funded courses as part of the British Council’s Connecting Classrooms Global Learning programme. These courses will provide engaging and practical activities linked to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Connecting Classrooms works with schools around the world to help young people develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to make a positive contribution now and in the future. Through collaboration with other schools, professional development for teachers and engaging learning resources, Connecting Classrooms helps prepare young people for life and work in a globalised world.
