17.01 -RoundTable on Climate Education
We want to invite you to the first roundtable in 2023 on climate education!
👉 During the meeting with experts and female experts we will touch on education for climate, biodiversity, food system transformation. We will talk about why building awareness about climate, human rights and the environment from an early age is so important and what the climate education of the future should look like. In an era of threats to people’s quality of life, a worsening health crisis, and loss of biodiversity, we can’t ignore the voice of science about the current food production system as an engine of climate catastrophe.
📣 What role should educational institutions in Poland play to build a society for systemic change, committed to building a green future? How do we connect the dots between food production and deforestation, use of natural resources, antibiotic resistance, decline in human quality of life and protection of animal rights? Is climate education a basic right of schoolchildren? What can we already do to make this happen?
