Climate Change: Our planet, our future

A webinar for Scottish secondary teachers of all subjects to increase your knowledge, skills and confidence to explore the climate crisis with learners. We will examine the current science around the state of the climate emergency and climate tipping points and explore possibilities for accelerating solutions. We will discuss the role of educators in the run up to the UN COP26 meeting in Glasgow in 2021, and share resources and activities for use with learners.
