This website is designed to give teachers a comprehensive guide to teaching climate change and sustainability to further enhance and enrich the classroom. This resource gives context and information for instructors in any subject area to feel comfortable addressing these topics: background knowledge and sources on climate change’s causes, impacts, and social-justice implications.
Sustainability concepts are inherently complex and benefit from interdisciplinary methods, therefore we’ve included suggestions on how that might work in your classroom. Equally important, these concepts must be included in core disciplines that all students take, rather than simply environmental science or other elective courses.
Our goal is simply to give a number of entrance points for teachers to incorporate climate and sustainability problems and solutions into their classes. This is intended to allow you to tailor the content you discover here to your specific classes and pupils.
