Teachers are being offered the chance to take part in a climate change education programme created by Harwood Education, with The One United Nations Climate Change Learning Partnership (UNITAR/UN CC:Learn) and sponsored by YPO. The online training for teachers in primary and secondary schools has been designed to equip teachers with the knowledge and confidence to deliver lessons on the topic of climate change to their class.
A target of 80 schools are being urged to sign up to take part in an initial trial of the course, lasting around two months, which covers topics including climate change science, gender and environment, children and climate change, cities and climate change, and human health. The programme will then be made available to all schools across the UK with first lessons expected to be delivered in the classroom from June.
This ambitious project will seek to develop a comprehensive package of interactive classroom materials on climate change for school teachers and children.
