Inspiring co-operative enterprise through education

EthCo project

What is the EthCo project?

EthCo is a partnership project set up by Enterprising Careers at Strathclyde University, with a number of agencies in Scotland to raise awareness of the Millennium Development Goals. The goals were agreed by all United Nation countries in 2000 and were to be achieved by 2015. In order to do this we need everyone to help!

Why have CETS got involved?

Enterprising Careers invited CETS, along with organisations including Learning Teaching Scotland, International Development Education Association Scotland and the Development Education Centres to pool resources and produce materials for schools which support interdisciplinary teaching within Curriculum for Excellence.

CETS have volunteered to become involved as the co-operative values and principles support these goals already through endorsing Fairtrade, ensuring we source goods ethically as well as committing to putting education at the heart of the co-operative movement's activities.

How can you get involved?

Most of the CETS resources support the Millennium Development Goals in one way or another, so sending for one of the packs and using it with your students will be a start!

Visit EthCo's website for information and how to register your interest.

You can visit the Education Scotland website and log onto our Glow Group which has been set up to share resources and practice with educators and students. All the resources are free and a number of schools have piloted them and are willing to share their experiences!

If you would like to be part of this project, please contact us.
