ITEN is searching for Ministries of Education to implement the ITEN MOOC. This course is free and offers teachers methodologies and tools that promote critical thinking in students between the ages of 12 and 18 years old.

The content of this course was developed within the framework of the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA) of the Department of Sustainable Development of the OAS. ECPA supports initiatives that tackle the challenges of energy security and climate change in the region and thus, sustainable energy is a cross-cutting theme in the topics covered in this MOOC.

The Program is carried out with the financial support of the U.S. Permanent Mission to the OAS
