Months in the making and translating, today we are delighted to be launching two new climate change education resources.
These education resources were developed to support teachers who were involved with the Climate Educators' Skillshare, and teachers across the Asia-Pacific region who are concerned about climate change.
The resources utilise an inquiry and sustainability action process in which students can make their own impact on greenhouse emissions. They were developed to be used widely across the region, and have been translated to Hindi and Indonesia Bahasa.
Aditya Pundir, Climate Reality India Branch Manager, sees a pressing need for such resources in his country. "India is one of the frontline nations facing the impacts of climate change, and with its 1.2 billion people at risk there is an urgent need for educators to teach about climate change in their classrooms to children, and educate communities they are in touch with" he said.
Amanda Katili, Branch Manager of Climate Reality Indonesia, is looking forward to sharing these resources with her teacher networks. She explains that "the strengths of these documents are the simplicity of complex climate change issues and the flexibility in implementing them."
