Climate Education for System Change


The climate crisis is systemic.

It is a product of the way our systems and structures operate.

That requires a radically new approach to climate education.

We are currently rolling out some new exciting features on our website.

This might trigger some small glitches to appear on our website.

Please come back later for a fuller Climate Academy experience.

A Systems-Informed Approach to Climate Education

Can we really call our children educated if they do not understand the depth and range of the climate crisis?

We need to move away from the traditional approach of teaching about the environment and begin to teach children following a systems-informed approach. This means that learning about the environment is not just about recycling or clean energy, but about understanding how climate change will affect all levels of society, including our economies, cultures, food production and more.

If we teach our children how to think about the climate crisis in larger systems terms, not only will they gain the knowledge necessary to make a difference, but they will also be empowered to become agents of change in their own communities.
