UNESCO-UNFCCC webinar: How Climate Change Knowledge Can Become Action

Tune into the first season of UNESCO-UNFCCC’s Webinar Series, Climate Change Education for Social Transformation: On the Road to COP27, which is dedicated to the goal of greening every education policy and curriculum to be climate ready. Taking place on the last Tuesday of every month, each episode will explore the critical role of climate change education, and how to harness its transformative power, in leading up to COP27.

About this month’s session, the second webinar of the series, “How Climate Change Knowledge Can Become Action:”

It is important that education policies, curriculum and pedagogies go beyond focusing on the cognitive knowledge and engage learners in their hearts and hands to lead profound changes in our societies towards sustainability. The second session questions the dominance of cognitive knowledge in education policies and investigates what needs to be integrated into curriculum to empower learners as agents of change towards the climate crisis.
