International Symposium on Climate Change and the Role of Education
April 12 - April 13
The symposium has the following aims:
a) to provide interested actors from across the world with an opportunity to present their work in the field of climate change and the role of education
b) to provide a platform for the exchange of information, ideas and experiences from projects and initiatives (whether completed, ongoing or emerging) focusing on climate change and education – an opportunity to share lessons learnt, successful initiatives and good practice from across the world.
c) to discuss pedagogical approaches and experiences which explore the role of education in adapting to climate change and resilient development.
d) to provide participants with networking opportunities with the overarching aim of promoting collaboration for future activities.
Participants will be invited to contribute towards an edited volume entitled ‘Climate Change and the Role of Education’. This book will be aimed at a wide readership, notably those on the front line of education and climate change adaptation; along with policy makers, researchers, community workers and students. The book will be a further volume of the series “Climate Change Management” published by Springer. The decision of the editors as to which papers may be selected and undergo peer review for the book is final.
