24SPR05 Teaching About Climate Change in the Irish Primary School

24SPR05 Teaching About Climate Change in the Irish Primary School

Human-induced climate change is the largest, most pervasive threat to the natural environment and societies the world has ever experienced’ - Ian Fry, the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights.

The education system has a huge role to play in climate education, and sustainability needs “to be at the heart of education” as per the government’s 2nd National Strategy on Education for Sustainable Development which was launched in 2022.

This short webinar aims to give educators a starting point from which they can begin teaching about climate change. It will give an overview of the following: climate facts, national policy on climate education, curriculum links, practical actions schools and individuals can take, climate anxiety, and where to access further information, training and resources for schools.

Suitable for Primary School Leaders, Teachers & SNAs
