When it comes to teaching on global warming, climate crisis and sustainability, teachers face a demanding task, they need to understand what they need to teach about the complex forces behind the climate crisis as well as it’s impact on well being and development prospects. As teachers, we need to take a one step forward by learning the science behind the crisis, to apply whole school approach to climate change, to integrate sustainability across the curriculum and apply activities, projects to teach crisis in the classroom.
This course is organised within the aim of both learning theoretical aspects of the climate crisis and practical dimensions of how to contribute to the prevention of the climate crisis at school level. To address the crisis for young people, critical thinking is required and students should be guided to understand how to think according to the principles of sustainability.
