​Reinventing Education: A Series for Educators 🌱

​Are you an educator with a passion for delivering inspiring learning journeys for your students? Are you frustrated by the current education paradigm, and are seeking an alternative?

​This series is for you.

​Join an inspiring community of educators and innovators, whose mission is to reinvent how we deliver education globally.

​What is education for climate change?

According to climate experts,Β we have until the year 2030Β to stop the continuous global warming of our planet. With this looming thread, there is a desperate need to equip society with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets to tackle this grand challenge.

​Yet, integrating climate action into the existing curriculum can be challenging, and finding ways to align climate-related topics with existing subjects while abiding by educational standards can be a hurdle. While there is an increased need for talent in Sustainability and Climate Tech, many young professionals are unsure of how to upskill themselves to contribute in this space.

​So how do we design education and learning systems that can contribute to tackling climate change?

​We explore that and more in the next Reinventing Education Series event.
