Climate Justice in Education is now receiving increasing attention to prepare the next generation for a sustainable, climate-friendly, and green economy society. 

Empowering youth to ethically reflect and democratically act on global issues to cocreate collective actions are key strategies part of CONNECT – inclusive open schooling with engaging and future-oriented science.

CONNECT offers two curriculum resources related to climate change for students to interact with science teachers, scientists, and families for developing knowledge, skills, attitude, and values.

  1. Rewilding: Students use their knowledge of interdependence and the inquiry skills of weighing up evidence  from diverse sources to support a claim for reintroducing missing species for ecological restoration and carbon storage.
  2. Carbon Neutral: Students apply their knowledge of Earth’s atmosphere and global warming and learn to consider different perspectives to help a cafe to become carbon neutral.

Our CONNECT webinar series invites special speakers to present and discuss principles and practices about developing democratic projects on climate justice embedded in an interdisciplinary curriculum. We wish to discuss recommendations to support teachers working on different branches of science in Europe and South America.

  1. Guiding teachers to enhance democracy in the curriculum supported by open teaching-learning materials.
  2. Facilitating quality discussions among secondary school students to enhance their participation supported by responsible research and innovation. 
  3. Promoting ‘fun’ participatory approaches to act as democratic citizens and professionals. 
  4. Mapping the Socio-Cultural-Scientific-Political Axis in Contemporary Education for curriculum integration of all branches of science. 
  5. Understanding educations’ role in fragility and adversity for equity, diversity, and inclusion.
  6. Global Citizenship education, supported by pedagogies for democracy and scientific literacy.
