On 28 October - 1 November 2013 in Bali, Indonesia, members of the ASEF ClassNet community shared expertise and made practical plans to integrate ICT, art and local culture into environmental education. The conference inspired action with impacts within and beyond the classroom.
87 teachers and 6 student representatives from 31 ASEM partner countries participated in the conference that encouraged the integration of ICT, art and local culture into environmental education and action within and beyond the classroom.
The conference was held in conjunction with the official launch of the ASEF Green Action Exhibition, which aimed to raise awareness on the harmful effects of plastic on the environment; 21 schools from 18 ASEM partner countries submitted entries.
Getting down to business, ASEF ClassNet teachers participated in practical workshops and training sessions on topics that ranged from “Adapting Education For Sustainable Consumption In Formal And Non Formal Education” to “Genuine Student-Led Action”, and from “School-Based Waste Management” to “Compost Art.”
These 38 new Online Collaborations were proposed by those ASEF ClassNet teachers participating in the conference, and the prestigious ASEF ClassNet Awards were presented to 6 of the preceding year’s Online Collaborations.
Following a opening presentation by Ambassador Soemadi Brotodiningrat, ASEF Governor for Indonesia, teachers were also introduced to Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) and the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), and later consider how to enhance the ASEF Classroom Network.
