PERL has held several series of seminars, think tanks and teacher training courses with the goal of furthering the discourse on and increasing knowledge about lifestyles and their relationship to environmental sustainability, social and economic development and personal health and well-being.
Partners in the PERL work group, Active Learning Methodologies, have created a Training Manual for teacher training seminars. The Training Manual builds on practical experience from a number of different countries and is intended as an aid to other teacher trainers. It is interdisciplinary and is a contribution to the U.N. Decade on Education for Sustainable Development.
