If you can see it, you can be it...but too often, people simply don't know what they don't know. Education is a critical starting point from which we can begin to implement change in the world.
If we want to stop climate change’s most dangerous effects, we need to start making education on it compelling, engaging, and actionable so that people adopt better habits and become the change they wish to see!
We need to explore new ways to convey the complexity and the interdisciplinary nature of climate action and sustainability to more diverse communities and youth groups, whose desire for concrete action to stop climate change is often neglected by adults who sometimes don’t have the necessary means to keep themselves updated or informed on the matter, themselves.
We need new innovative projects for diverse populations and generations concerning sustainability, that also align with the SDGs of the UN Agenda2030.
- What are some successful sustainability+educational projects that we can we implement to involve childrens’ parents and relatives, storekeepers and retailers, businesses and organizations in this ecological transition?
- How can we promote behavioral change in people’s daily lives and provide them with new insights and approaches to successfully engage them in better habits?
- How can we offer people correct data and show them the most effective tools to reduce personal, national, and global carbon emissions? How can we equip them with the ability and responsibility to know the costs of their lifestyle and make better decisions for themselves and the future of their children?
- Finally, how can we foster cultural change? How can we integrate environmental education with social justice, human rights, and holistic well-being? How can we shift our communities towards more sustainable paradigms?
