Delivered by: Rachel O’Connor, Mary Moore, Oisin Coghlan and Chaired by Ella McSweeney

Description: 

The second national strategy on Education for Sustainable Development to 2030 recognises that we face huge global challenges and that we need to work together in innovative ways to achieve positive change.  The strategy is welcome and comes after another summer of catastrophic climatic events across the globe.  Climate change is happening now and it is accelerating at a faster rate than the climate scientists expected.  We know that education has a crucial role to play in addressing the climate and biodiversity crises.  

In this panel discussion we will be discussing why climate and nature education is important, the opportunities and challenges, and the journey to developing a sustainable ethos in your school.
