On 9th November two public events on climate change education in Dublin. Teachers and CSO practitioners working together for Global Schools.
On Wednesday November 9th, the Global Schools team in Ireland held 2 public events in DCU St. Patrick's Campus. Both events focused on climate change education.
In the afternoon, a workshop was held, targeting teachers, which explored methodologies for teaching about climate change. The workshop was facilitated by David Selby and Fumiyo Kagawa, or Sustainability Frontiers. This also served as the first workshop for 10 Irish teachers who will be travelling to Portugal in Spring 2017, as part of the Global Schools teacher exchange programme.
The evening saw a public panel discussion which also served to launch "Creating Futures", a resource written by Rowan Oberman, in partnership with Trócaire. The resource offers a number of lessons and activities for climate change education in senior primary school and can be accessed here .
Speakers included Professor Fionnuala Waldron (DCU), Fumiyo Kagawa (Sustainability Frontiers), David Selby (Sustainability Frontiers) and Heather Maseko (former Assistant National Co-ordinator at the Civil Society Network on Climate Change, Malawi).
Both events were attended by participants working in the education, development and non-governmental sectors in Ireland.
