Empowering Students Through Holistic Climate Education

This interactive workshop aims to help teachers gain confidence and competence teaching climate change. Participants will be guided in a process of Climate Curriculum Mapping, where they collaborate to identify areas where climate change can connect to the BC curriculum (beyond where it’s explicitly mentioned). Participants will then be introduced to Student Leadership for Change (SLC), a library of classroom-tested learning resources for holistic climate education, which empowers students to explore their values and develop agency. Participants will be invited to join an emergent Action Network to connect with other engaged teachers and receive additional mentorship, resources and support.
