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

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.

Systems-informed approach

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.

Focus on intersectionality

Intersectionality can help us identify the systemic roots of injustice, rather than simply focusing on individual behaviors that reproduce oppressive systems. By helping people to recognize the interconnected nature of oppression and exploitation across different identities, intersectionality gives a clearer picture of how deep-seated inequalities are maintained and perpetuated—and how they might be overcome.


Presenting an inconvenient truth

It is easy to tell why we are in a climate crisis.

CutXpercent is an annually updated set of figures that shows what is required to meet the objective of the Paris Agreement. It provides the required annual emissions reductions for the 1.5°C target and the 2°C target, for every nation in the world. This is what it all comes down to.
