Natural History GCSE and Climate Literacy

A cross-posting from my GCSE Natural History blog.

A new post on the OCR website from Professor Sylvia Knight.

She talks about the connections between the proposed specification and climate literacy.

"Whilst the Natural History GCSE is not and should not be a ‘climate change GCSE’ (in my opinion, the Statistics GCSE is actually best placed to be delivered entirely within a context of climate change), the inherent and intrinsic links between climate change and the natural world, in terms of impacts, adaptation and mitigation, are too numerous for climate change not to be near the core of the new qualification.

The Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) is the UK’s Professional and Learned Society for weather and climate. We believe that every student should leave school with the basic climate literacy that would enable them to engage with the messages put forward by the media or politicians or to make informed decisions about their own opportunities and responsibilities when it comes to climate change mitigation and adaptation, and also to equip them with the knowledge and skills required for the green jobs of the future."
