23 Aug How climate education can empower students
Climate change can be an overwhelming concept for young people. But perhaps it can be made easier to understand and relate to by demonstrating local impacts and showing students how young people all over the world are dealing with similar issues.
How does youth activism support learning opportunities? What are the components of learning that best support ‘green life skills education’? How are teachers already helping students develop these skills, with vastly different access to resources?
In this episode, Nina talks to Christina Kwauk, an interdisciplinary researcher specialising in international development, education and climate change. She also talks to teachers from Madagascar, Kenya and Indonesia about their role in raising awareness among the students they teach, and providing them with the support they need.
You can find Christina Kwauk on Twitter and LinkedIn.
