Education in the context of the climate crisis

Environment Themed

What’s on offer?

At this online event you will get to hear brief presentations from staff at Eden Project Cornwall, Lancaster University and local schools involved in the Morecambe Bay Curriculum

We will hear insights from 20 years of delivering nature based education at the Eden project Cornwall and inspiring examples of Morecambe based projects. We will also get an international perspective on how to talk to young people about climate change.

We will cover what a climate aware nature based curriculum routed in place looks like and how progress in developing the curriculum and pedagogy in Cumbria. 

Importantly we will consider pupil voice and agency.
