What does bold, empowering climate justice education look like? How can teachers support and act in solidarity with youth climate activists? What are the stories that can help students develop a greater capacity for collective action and a strong vision for social and environmental justice in response to the climate crisis?
In this course, participants will consider theses questions and more. Through personal narratives, readings, role-plays and presentations from student climate activists, participants will work to create the sort of transformational education required in this moment of climate emergency.
Participants will create climate justice lesson plans that pull from the themes of the course to take back to their own communities of learning, to share in advance of the Earth Day 2020 global climate strikes.
