‘We live on a planet in crisis and the young people we educate will face enormous challenges during their working lives to help realise the energy, ecological, economic and social transitions that are needed to keep our earth livable for current and future generations. The crises are so severe and the stakes so high, that it can be daunting for students and affect their mental well-being. As educators, how do we ensure that our students leave equipped with the tools they will need to confidently play their role in meeting the climate, ecological and societal challenges? I believe this is the most important task we have as educators.’
‘I therefore highly recommend the sessions that will address this. I have already signed up for 'Education for climate change-Learning together today for tomorrow' by Rozi Toth on Monday, March 20th and ‘Promoting sustainability literacy in students’ by Sandra Klaperski-van der Wal and Inge Hindriks on Wednesday March 22nd.
‘In her masterclass, Rozi will address the questions ‘What world do we learn for?’ and ‘What does the world of today and tomorrow require from us?’ and share her journey as a researcher and educational innovator for climate change.’
‘You can join the online workshop from Inge and Sandra for a brief interactive and inspirational session on why and how teachers should contribute to sustainable development. The learning objective of this session is greater awareness of students' future realities and how to prepare them with education that incorporates sustainability.’
