About the 2023 Seminar:

This online seminar will inform K-12 teachers about the UN’s Sustainability Goal: Prosperity, focusing on the movement of goods and people in the regions of East Asia, Eastern Europe/Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The seminar will start by giving participants a solid foundation in the relevant political, social, and historical theories in order to ground their understanding of the movement of goods and people. Then throughout the seminar, guest experts will present regional case studies to provide comparative perspectives of what are prominent issues in their region, including the silk road and migration.


Teachers will receive a certificate of completion with 20 contact hours and 2 CEUs after completing all aspects (orientation, summer seminar and follow up), and a $100 stipend for completing a lesson plan by August 15. The seminar is open to both pre-service and in-service teachers and is free of charge.
Application: Online application (Applications still open for 2023).
