Climate change is considered to be the most critical factor affecting sustainable and equitable development, increasing conflicts, and causing massive extinction of species. Its impact is inseparable from our day-to-day life, now and in future, so is both a problem to be addressed by action policies, and a problem that requires education and that can be adopted for more effective teaching.
The TROP ICSU project collects and curates educational resources for teachers and self-learners to learn about Climate Change. The quality of life of future generations is largely dependent on the quality of education that we impart to today’s students.
The goal is not to introduce Climate Education as a stand-alone topic, but to integrate it with the core curriculum of Science, Mathematics, and Social Sciences.
TROP ICSU is a global project funded by the International Council of Science. See here its vision, strategy and methods.
See how these resources can help you learn about Climate Change, or to introduce Climate Change in your classroom as a teacher.
