Schools @ Climate Academy will provide comprehensive assistance to primary and secondary schools in imparting effective climate education.
Today’s school children will be at the forefront of climate action ten years from now. A recent study found children born in 2020 could face seven times more climate disasters than those born in 1960.
But climate education in schools worldwide leaves much to be desired.
While most schools have some topics about the environment from early grades, our review found that most of these are inadequate for them to develop the effective knowledge they need to pursue higher studies and careers related to climate and sustainability.
Our interactions have further shown that many teachers and school administrators were keen to get external assistance on this.
At Climate Academy, we have created a small division dedicated to assisting schools in their climate education initiatives. We use our deep understanding of the decarbonization domain and the decarbonization avenues (see the complete list of these here) to structure education for school children that are aligned to these.
Simply put, we help in providing high-impact climate education for schools.
We can provide assistance for grades starting from Grade IV all the way to higher secondary education.
While most of Climate Academy’s efforts are currently focused on India for many of our education & skilling programs, for school education we will be happy to assist teachers from any part of the world as the content/assistance needed is pretty similar for schools anywhere.
