Teacher Training program for a sustainable School

Connecting the dots; the importance of climate education in schools

Never before in history has the future of our environment been a more pressing issue than it is today. This generation of students will feel the effects of climate change more than any other and it is critical that every student is provided with an opportunity to study and understand the climate crisis through the school curriculum.

Our teacher training program can support teachers in Ireland to practically connect their subject to the environment under a prehensive and interdisciplinary lens. Understanding that the environment is linked to every aspect of our lives is crucial to conserving it. Climate change education is key to turning the tide on this crisis and to creating a safe, sustainable world for generations to come.
We believe that students are the best agents for change. As teachers it is our job to educate ourselfes so we can help harness their strengths, skills and passions to do good in the world.

These teacher training workshops are designed to equip teachers with the knowledge, attitudes, behaviours and skills required to effectively and confidently deliver climate education across the curriculum. The workshops can compliment any framework and support students and teachers to live more sustainable lives.
