Climate-Conscious Futures for the Well-Being of All: Teaching About Climate Change and Peace in the K-12 Classroom
At an accelerating pace the 21st Century will continue to usher in unprecedented risk to humanity’s fundamental goal: Peace...By coupling peace-building problem-solving methods with rigorous climate change research and resilience strategies, we will help equip decision makers at all scales with the tools needed to sustainably respond to the climate crisis, reduce social friction, and build social cohesion through locally-based and culturally-appropriate responses. -- Institute for Climate and Peace
This workshop is designed for educators who want to learn more about the changing climate and its impacts on society. Participants will be provided with the opportunity to engage in a series of learning opportunities that will better equip them for teaching about climate change in the K-12 classroom. A collaboration between the Hanahau‘oli School Professional Development Center and the Institute for Climate and Peace--this workshop will introduce educators to key concepts and classroom strategies for the purpose of creating more climate-conscious and empowered students. Participants will also learn why classroom teaching and learning about climate-change is inextricably linked to the concept of peace, and how the pairing of these two concepts in K-12 education will help to advance effective and inclusive processes to build peaceful and climate-conscious futures for the well-being of all.
