Climate change adaptation in education
Virtual workshop on 16 Sept 2021 – Registration open now!
In addition to mitigating the climate change, we need to learn how to adapt to its direct and indirect effects, which we are already experiencing. How should we teach adaptation?
Welcome to a virtual workshop about climate change adaptation in education on September 16th 2021 at 12-15 (GMT +3, Helsinki). The event is organized by the project “Climate resilience with Baltic Sea co-operation – Flood and Drought Risk Management”. We welcome persons familiar with the curricula of primary and secondary schools, colleges, vocational schools and universities from the Baltic Sea Region to participate.
Registration is now open!
The purpose of the workshop is to discuss how to teach climate change adaptation at different educational levels.
