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, UNESCO and Education International are inviting teachers to:
• Share 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.
Make sure to submit your video by 15 August if you would like your initiative to be amongst the first released and to be considered for our first conversation for teaching on climate action!
This initiative is led by OECD, UNESCO and the International Task Force on Teachers for Education 2030.
