Abstract

The environment and society course is designed as a postgraduate teacher retraining course, mainly for teachers, in the form of distance learning in order to provide a flexible learning in space and time. Training on sustainable development represents an educational-instructional process that can lead to the rise of a population group being sensitive to environmental problems. The course deals with environmental and sustainable education in their complexity. It provides an introduction to the natural, built and social environment and to the development of social and economic life. This course centres on the education and retraining of sustainable development. Furthermore, both the content (education of environmental and sustainable development) and the form (distance learning and innovative teaching methodologies) of the course will be disseminated as models to the Hungarian higher education community.
