Webinar Duration: 53 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide headteachers, governors, senior leaders, history leads, teachers and practitioners with advice and practical guidance on integrating climate education into the secondary history curriculum, as part of a holistic approach to develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding of climate change.
The DfE’s policy paper Sustainability and climate change: a strategy for the education and children’s services systems highlights the urgent need to give children and young people ‘the knowledge and skills to thrive in the green economy and to help restore nature’. By interweaving climate education across the curriculum, schools can provide pupils with a much deeper insight into the truth about environmental issues, and their role as agents of change.
In this webinar, Kyle Graham, director of history and previous head of humanities and history, explains how secondary schools can use history lessons to develop pupils’ climate literacy, using practical examples and activities to enhance teaching and learning.
