How to make better world together through education? How to teach climate change? We welcome you to participate in our international Teachers' Climate Change Forum!
The Science Education Centre (a part of national LUMA Centre Finland) and Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research (INAR) from University of Helsinki are organizing the international and participative Teachers' Climate Change Forum 2020 - a continuous professional development program for teachers on all levels of education from around the world.
Climate change is one of the biggest global challenges of our time. Teachers have a key role in educating children and youth – future makers – in their knowledge, skills and attitude. Every teacher has influence for over a hundred years; first during their career and then through their students.
Diverse teaching of climate issues is essential. Solving climate change requires both the courage to face problems and the knowledge and know-how involved in solving the problem. Climate change should be seen as a complex phenomenon in teaching, which requires a deep understanding with diverse perspectives.
Teachers from all levels of education and of different subjects are welcomed to join the TCCF community. Also teacher students (i.e. students studying to become teachers) are welcome.
In 2020, TCCF Summer Camp is not organised due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The MOOC course is available now.
Instead of the Summer Camp, we are organising TCCF Climate Education Online Conference on August 3rd-4th, 2020. The conference will deal with climate science and climate education, and it is free and open for all.
