Keynote Speaker - Johannah Bernstein
Johannah Bernstein is an international environmental advocate and educator. Her entire professional life has been devoted to the cause of global sustainability.
Johannah’s first degree in Human Ecology was obtained from the College of the Atlantic (1983). Her law degrees were subsequently obtained at Canada’s Osgoode Hall Law School (1986) and the University of Oxford (1987).
Since 1991, Johannah has advised national governments, international NGOs, and UN organisations on a wide range of global sustainability issues. Johannah has also been equipping young change-makers from around the world with the knowledge, skills and competencies needed to be true forces for peace and sustainability.
Drawing on her international diplomacy experience, Johannah has developed novel approaches to her university teaching on global environmental politics, international environmental law, peace and conflict, global governance reform. Johannah has developed pedagogic approaches, which are embedded in the principles of 21st century learning, combining the Socratic process and reinforced by project, phenomenon and problem-based learning approaches and negotiation simulation activities. Johannah has taught courses on global environmental politics, international environmental law, ethics, peace and conflict, and global governance reform at the under-graduate and graduate levels at many universities in the world.
In 2017, Johannah completed a seven-month long study for Pearson College, on the challenges and opportunities for deepening experiential education in the curricular, and co-curricular and residential spheres of the UWC educational experience. This study has provided the entire United World College (UWC) movement with concrete recommendations for integrating cutting-edge experiential teaching methodologies within the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme.
