Cape Town 2022 GIFT Workshop
We proudly announce the third Geosciences Information for Teachers – or – GIFT Workshop to be held in the beautiful seaside city of Cape Town, South Africa! This amazing workshop is made possible through generous support from the European Geosciences Union (EGU), Education Committee, and features local experts from the University of Cape Town, Iziko South African Museum, University of the Western Cape, and Two Oceans Aquarium. Participants for the in-person workshop can be nominated by their Subject Advisor (SA) or university advisor (for pre-service teachers). There will be a followup online workshop that will be presented to other interested teachers later this year.
If any participants nominated and chosen, need to commit to attending all three days of the program. The EGU will give each participant a daily travel allowance and breakfast and lunch will be provided. A select group of participants from outside Cape Town will be given travel and accommodation support to attend the Workshop.
Please see the full brochure (PDF document, 2.3 MB) for more details.
