关于内容

Our climate is changing rapidly, and now more than ever we need to be ready to act and prepare the next generation to take care of our planet.

This course explores the basic science behind climate change and presents the tools to teach it in a positive, engaging and participatory way. The course also introduces some of the ethical and social issues around climate change.

This course makes use of videos, lesson plans and online games developed by the IDB's "Rise-Up: Education Against Climate Change" initiative. The aim is to prepare primary and secondary teachers  to teach about climate change and promote actions to mitigate and adapt to climate change in within the school community.

  • Basic science behind climate change

  • What we can do individually, as a school and as a community to live a more sustainable and healthy life
