Two new publications! And a fantastic event!
We are so pleased to announce two new publications today!
The Nature Relations group have published their fantastic photo essay in NORRAG Special Issue 07: Education in Times of Climate Change, which was launched today! Find it here starting on page 55. Congratulations!
Furthermore, Professor Paul Howard-Jones and Professor Justin Dillon yesterday published a report with Policy Bristol, entitled “Climate Change education: A “world-leading strategy” would benefit from being research-informed“.
Which brings me on to…
Yesterday’s event – “Enacting Climate Change Education: the DfE sustainability strategy and beyond” – what a wonderful webinar!
WOW! What a fantastic event yesterday! Thank you to all of our wonderful speakers, as well as the attendees who participated so actively via the chat and Q&A – chat can be found here.
In the first half, we heard from CCERN researchers Dr Verity Jones, Dr Tracy Helliwell, Lauren Hennessy, Prof Paul Howard-Jones and Chris Aldred, providing updates on their research/school-based projects. We also received an update from Cecily Etherington from InterClimate Network on the latest findings from their innovative research capturing student voice on climate.
The second half of the event was a panel discussion, chaired by Paul Howard-Jones and featuring Prof Justin Dillon, Dr Lizzie Rushton, Dr Lynda Dunlop and Izzy and Ollie from Teach the Future (TTF). This really was an expert panel – as well as the above newly published policy report from Howard-Jones and Dillon, Dr Lizzie Rushton and Dr Lynda Dunlop have written this article on the topic (they also co-convene the BERA Special Interest Group Education for Environmental Sustainability). Furthermore, the speakers from TTF provided fantastic insight from a young person’s perspective with great depth of knowledge and sharp analytic skills – thanks Izzy and Ollie! If you have not seen it, the recent TTF report “Curriculum for a Changing Climate: a track changes review of the national curriculum for England” is an incredibly valuable piece of work so do take a look!
