WCECW425 Climate Change, Science and Action


DESCRIPTION: Tune in for a taster of the primary summer course brought to you by Green-Schools and the Climate Ambassador Programme! The aim is simple: to empower primary teachers to confidently explore climate change as part of the curriculum and encourage climate action in school communities. First piloted in 2019, the 20-hour CPD course “Climate Change, Science & Action” has been completed by 123 Primary School Teachers in Ireland to date. We are excited to share the results with you and we also have a beautiful giant storybook for everyone in the audience!

“I really enjoyed both the content and layout of this course. It was thought provoking and informative. I feel in a much better place to discuss and teach about these problems in my class”.

“This course was excellent. I thought I knew quite a bit about climate change, but I learned so much more from this course. I feel really confident now to teach about climate change especially with all the resources provided in this course”.

“Thank you to all involved at An Taisce. The materials were well put together and the engagement from tutors was excellent. I felt (insofar as possible remotely!) there was an excellent community spirit during the course. Even though I have engaged with climate science in my own life and teaching capacity, I found the course thoroughly beneficial and heartening”.
