Training Course: Climate change education inside and outside the classroom in the Caribbean and Central America

United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development

This four day course supports educators to discuss climate change in and outside the classroom. It provides a conceptual background to climate change education for sustainable development (CCESD), with practical exercise that takes place in and outside the classroom. It looks at the global as well as the local impact of climate change, is action-oriented and applies the Sandwatch – MAST approach (measure, analyse, share and take action) to beach environments.

The Course Objectives are:
• To provide an outline course and supporting documents which educators can use to develop CCESD programmes, activities or materials specific to their professional and social-ecological context.
• To incorporate rigorous scientific knowledge, local knowledge and ethical reflection into climate change education for adaptation and mitigation in small islands and coastal regions.
• To introduce educators to the MAST and other action-oriented pedagogies to teach about climate change and beach environments.
