Too often traditional professional development for educators does not provide the satisfaction teachers are seeking. At Futuro Verde, we believe in meaningful professional development that creates a contextualized experience for teachers, parents, educators and community members to reflect, to learn and to grow together. The BHS conference is an excellent venue for educators from all over Costa Rica and beyond to share aspects of their own teaching or research and to engage in learning and conversations with like-minded peers and colleagues from just down the hall and from around the globe.

Dual language is a form of bilingual education in which students are taught literacy and content in two languages. Dual language programs foster bilingualism, biliteracy, enhanced awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity, and high levels of academic achievement through instruction in two languages.
Holistic education is a philosophy of education based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to humanitarian values such as compassion and peace. Importance is placed on both academic and non-academic areas to include: healthy relationships and pro-social development, emotional development, resilience and an interest and fascination with our world.
Education for Sustainable Development means including key sustainable development issues into teaching and learning; for example, climate change, disaster risk reduction, biodiversity, poverty reduction, and sustainable consumption. It also requires participatory teaching and learning methods that motivate and empower learners to change their behavior and take action for sustainable development. Education for Sustainable Development consequently promotes competencies like critical thinking, imagining future scenarios and making decisions in a collaborative way. (unesco.org)
