Join us 25.01.21 at 5pm: How can teachers support student action on the climate in lockdown? With Johan Rockstrom and David de Rothschild

About this Event

We invite you to our virtual conversation bringing together teachers, young people and some of the world’s leading environmentalists to ask:

How can teachers support student action on the climate crisis in lockdown?

Despite huge pressures in the return to school at the start of 2021, many teachers still feel passionately about inspiring their students to take action on the climate crisis. Yet the issue can feel very complex and translating this passion into effective remote learning is unchartered territory.

This year sees the most significant climate event since the Paris Agreement in 2015, the UN Climate Change Conference (also known as COP26), taking place in Glasgow in November. This a huge moment for the world and can act as a launchpad for teachers to give students the opportunity to engage with the climate crisis in a positive way.

Please join our event and hear from a group of leading experts who will share their tips and ideas on how you can inspire, motivate and integrate climate education into your remote learning during lockdown. We will welcome your engagements throughout the event including a live Q&A.
