Approaches to teaching about the COP26 Climate Conference

One of the first CPD events of my GA Presidency will be this one. 

\Not the actual COP26, but an event for teachers linked to it...

This is a one hour CPD session exploring ideas for teaching about COP26, which has been organised by the GA's Sustainability and Citizenship Special Interest Group - one of the committees and SIGs organised by volunteers that helps the GA complete its work to support members.

Geography can provide the necessary knowledge and context for powerful, and purposeful, learning experiences in the primary curriculum, empowering children in these times of climate and biodiversity crises. This could be the most essential and hopeful ‘recovery curriculum’ you will ever devise.
