According to the “LISUM - Landesamt für Schule und Medien”, the framework curriculum sets a focus on the following values: consumer education, health promotion, education of acceptance of diversity and learning in global contexts, and sustainable development. This was financially supported by the local Ministry of Consumer Protection and carried out by the University of Potsdam.

In order to achieve this transformation, the need arose to train teachers of the state of Brandenburg (Germany) in these very aspects. Therefore, the EVeLaB project had established innovative teaching materials, and furthermore, successfully trained over 120 teachers from 50 schools (primarily secondary schools) from 2017 to 2020. The workshops were designed in a self-experience format, so that the participants would become familiar with the contents and the didactical methods in the role of students.

This 45-minute interactive lecture by Carolin Hammer (M.Ed.) serves as an illustration of the background for this project. Part of this presentation is the structure as well as the results of the evaluation of the training workshops. Furthermore, the participants will get practical insights into one of the conducted workshops with focus on food waste and consumer education in a school based context.
