Deep Climate Change Education: Learning and Teaching for Personal and Social Transformation

In this Green Teacher Webinar, building on their fall 2011 article in the magazine, Fumiyo Kagawa and David Selby critique mainstream manifestations of climate change education as a shallow and insufficient response to the global and human condition. They offer an elaboration of 'deep climate change education' that examines values issues, explores the dynamics of climate change avoidance and denial, investigates the complicity of economic growth in fomenting climate change while cultivating intimacy with nature, an ethic of denizenship, and commitment to global climate justice. The links between climate change education, sustainability education and disaster risk reduction education are explored, deep climate change education being exemplified through descriptions of practical activities.
