Climate change is the defining crisis of our generation, and it will be the lived reality for generations to come. Yet, many people still do not understand the issue or feel able to respond to it adequately, including the very young people who will be most affected.
In response to this, Reading University will be hosting an online Climate Education Summit on the 15th September 2021. The Summit aims to bring together young people, scientists, teachers, educators, policymakers and campaigners. To create a new, nationwide action plan for better climate education in schools.
The Summit will consist of keynote plenary sessions open to all and closed roundtable discussions. The aim of these sessions will be to identify and outline how changes can be made in climate and sustainability education. So that young people can acquire the skills and knowledge needed for dealing with climate change in the twenty-first century.
Date: Wednesday 15th September 2021
Tickets: Free! You can book your ticket here
Venue: Online via Microsoft Teams
