International Symposium on Climate Change and the role of Education
April 12th and 13th, 2019
Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln, UK
Education in all its forms plays a crucial role, globally and locally, in engaging and empowering people to act to alleviate the impacts of the climate change. Even though education is a key element which can be deployed in fostering climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, there is a paucity of events where a special focus to education is given. In order to fill in this gap, the International Symposium on Climate Change and the Role of Education is being organised by Bishop Grosseteste University (UK), the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and the International Climate Change Information Programme.
This symposium is aimed at those working in, or concerned with, education and climate change. It provides an opportunity to showcase projects, approaches and activities that investigate or utilise education as a means to mitigate or adapt to climate change. The conference also highlights the pedagogical approach museums and galleries utilize in discussing science, which arguably happens more than in classrooms.
