Our partners from the International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS)introduced the TROP ICSU project and its teaching resources at a teachers training event as part of the reunion of the Austrian Geography teachers in Strobl, Austria.

Austria-Workshop2This workshop was conducted in German for representatives of the Austrian federal states’ Geography teachers, who are responsible for teachers training curriculum in their federal states. Therefore, it is expected that the project will benefit from a significant multiplier effect.

In summary, the teachers provided positive feedback on the Geography teaching resources and found them to be useful.
