Activity: Talk or presentation › Invited talk › Research
Over the last decade Climate Change Education (CCE) at universities has increased (Filho et al. 2021; Thew et al., (2021). There is a range of published examples/case studies illustrating how CCE is embedded within certain courses/disciplines (Madden et al., 2018; Molthan-Hill et al., 2019; Kinakh, 2021). There are still challenges in addressing climate change within the teaching practices at universities.
Session organiser, facilitator and co-presenter:
Dr. Vitalia Kinakh, The University of Manchester
This session seeks to further the debate on:
- What are the attitudes of teaching staff to CEE, their knowledge of climate change, and inclusion of ‘climate change’ topics in their teaching?
- What strategies are more effective in educating modern-day students about climate change (e.g., how educators should teach and how undergraduate/postgraduate students might be engaged to learn about climate change and actions that can be taken to mitigate and adapt to climate change)?
- To assist in embedding CEE in curricula, can the existing strategies, initiatives, case studies, etc. be replicated in universities across the globe, and can challenges to implement CCE be addressed/resolved promptly?
