In our 8th post in the Greening ELT series, we’re very pleased to welcome Janet Aitchison. She shares a personal report on an interesting initiative from Oxford University Press: a two-week eco event for staff at offices around the world.
We’d like to say a very big thank you to Jennifer Taylor for coming back to share an update on the TESOL France 2019 symposium in Lille. She first posted about TESOL’ France’s green initiatives in November in the run up to the symposium. Now she’s back to tell us how it went.
In our fifth post in the Greening ELT series, we’d like to say a big thank you to Jennifer Taylor at TESOL France for sharing information about how the association is reducing the environmental impact of their colloquium in Lille on November 30 -December 1 2019. (Click on the link to find out more about the event).
We are delighted with the ongoing dialogue ELT Footprint is having with IATEFL about their environmental commitment. They are busy working to make the organisation a brighter shade of green. This includes engaging with exhibitors at the annual conference to make sure that they are aware of IATEFL’s new policies and making sure their Exhibitors’ Handbook reflect these policies. Check out their IATEFL2020_Exhibition Environmental Awareness poster with some great suggestions.
Recently the Woodland Trust (a UK-based woodland conservation charity) got in touch with us on the blog. They wanted to share information about their most recent campaign: The Big Climate Fightback. We had decided to share this information on the blog in order to encourage people based in the UK to take part in the campaign, and to invite people based in other countries to sponsor similar initiatives in their context.
In the third post in our Greening ELT series, we would like to thank Scott Markham, president of the Spanish organisation, FECEI (Federación Española de Centros de Enseñanza de Idiomas, Spanish Federation of Language Schools) for sharing an update on the organisation’s most recent initiatives.
We’re very pleased to be able to share this article by Rebecca Place, media officer for TESOL-SPAIN (Spain’s national teachers’ association), where she shares details of some of the initiatives the association have been developing over the last few years. This is the first post in a series, Greening ELT, where we’ll be sharing information about how various organisations and associations are taking action to be more sustainable.
