Transforming how our next generation thinks and acts about the environment and the world requires profound changes in teaching and learning. In PISA, eight out of ten students (78%) reported caring about the environment, and yet less than half of them (38%) felt empowered to participate in activities to protect it. How can we empower students in our classrooms and schools to have a real voice and an active role in this pressing issue for our future?
The OECD and partner organisations are inviting teachers and school leaders to:
• Share your initiatives and projects on student empowerment around climate action.
• Participate in a series of virtual Teacher Forums to collaborate on teaching on climate across borders and cultures.
• Help us identify, spread and initiate powerful climate insights alongside an international jury.
• Join the Global Teacher Forum on Climate Action to take part in developing an action plan to implement the leading insights in classrooms, education systems and policies.
