Education is a vital force in the fight for climate justice. With such an immense task in front of us, we might find ourselves wondering where to begin.That’s why the Third Generation Project are inviting educators, students/pupils, practitioners and policymakers to join us in exploring some of the key themes of educating for climate justice. The 3 online workshops in February, March, and April 2021 will feature a wide variety of fantastic speakers.
The last of these three events will be Moving from despair to hope: the importance of critical emotional literacy, running on Saturday 17 April
What do recent initiatives to ‘decolonise’ education really mean? What will this mean for climate education and how can we confront and address structural injustices? Learning about injustices – in schools, in communities and through activism – means that we make space to explore the range of emotional responses that might help or hinder our learning. People may get angry, they might grasp for positive emotions, or they might simply close down if they feel as though they can’t to do anything. This event will provide space to participants to critically reflect on and discuss the need for critical emotional literacy in education for climate justice.
