Challenge-based Learning
in Primary Schools for Climate Change Awareness

Project Overview

 

According to the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), “by 2050, with a projected increased global population of 9.6 billion, we would need the equivalent of almost 3 planets worth of resources to sustain our way of living, if our current consumption and production patterns remain the same.” Across the globe, young climate activists are raising awareness about climate change, and exerting pressure on governments and businesses around the world to take action to save the planet.

Educational Material

 

Climate Change Challenge WebQuests - The first output aims to develop challenge-based learning resources for pupils aged 8-12 years old on six climate change topics.

CPD Training for Primary School Teachers - This output focuses on the design and development of a Continuing Professionals Development training and resources for primary teachers so that they can increase their knowledge of the climate crisis and develop their pedagogic and digital skills to create their own interactive learning resources that can then be applied to a variety of curriculum areas and topics.

Digital Resources - The third output starts off from the need to support parents to fully recognize the impact that their habits and behaviors can have on the rate of climate change. This output will promote the development of learning resources that will teach parents about the link between household consumption and climate change, and will give examples of how they can reduce the carbon footprint of their household.
