Why are we doing this?
When UNESCO looked at the education policies of 78 countries across the globe, they found that climate was referenced in less than half of them (47%) and biodiversity in only 19% of them. In a recent survey in the UK, 70% of teachers reported that they had not received training on any aspects of climate change.
We want this to change! Our future is at stake. We see the impacts of the climate crisis every day, and it's essential to educate students, now more than ever, in a way that ignites hope within them. Teach the teacher will allow students to give a presentation to their teachers that ensures open and holistic discussion about climate change, climate education, its intersectionalities and all of its adversaries. The campaign title may be slightly misleading - it is a two-way discussion rather than a lecture.
