“In recent years, young people have been at the forefront of the fight against the climate crisis. However, formal education curricula have not yet been deeply affected by the climate crisis and this in spite of the fact that the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Paris Agreement, and Action for Climate Empowerment agenda have all called on governments to educate, empower and engage citizens, communities, organisations on policies and actions relating to climate change.”
On the 27th of June, our very own Joshua Forstenzer, together with Magid Magid (Union of Justice) and Naim Zriouel (Synergie Family) will lead a workshop on “Imagining a Climate Crisis Curriculum” – addressing not only how to (re)-imagine education in the face of the climate crisis, but also thinking about how this relates “to the purposes of education in the 21st century, the appropriate pedagogies for confronting and responding to the climate crisis, the responsibilities of educators and governments in responding to the evolving mental health needs of students, and more.”
When? – 27th of June, 11:00-17:00
Where? Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences, Sheffield
