Sustainability Frontiers Green Teacher Webinar, Deep Climate Change Education: Learning and Teaching for Personal and Social Transformation
On Thursday 8 March 2012, 7:30pm to 8:30pm Eastern Standard Time, Fumiyo Kagawa and David Selby will present a Webinar in the much-heralded Winter 2011-2012 Green Teacher Webinar Series.
Building on their Fall 2011 article in Green Teacher, Fumiyo Kagawa and David Selby will critique mainstream manifestations of climate change education as a shallow and insufficient response to the global and human condition. They will offer an elaboration of a ‘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 will be explored, the whole being exemplified through practical activities. The event is for both both formal and non-formal youth educators.
