Multidisciplinary Climate Education
Climate change is an interdisciplinary issue and solving it requires multidisciplinary cooperation and various skills and knowhow. All school subjects have something to offer in terms of mitigation and adaptation. In the fight to save the planet, we need different branches of science assisting today’s as well as tomorrow’s adults and youth. Learning active citizenship involves doing and exploring, and climate change education provides an excellent platform for this.
Teacher’s climate guide is an education package about climate change in the context of each school subject, but it also provides a good starting point for diverse environmental education between different subjects. The following chapter introduces one possible climate education tool. Hopefully it inspires new ideas to generate!
