As the impacts of climate change continue to pose significant environmental and social issues in society, empowering learners by tackling these growing challenges in the classroom is more important than ever. This session will explore a selection of GreenLearning’s free environmental challenges designed to put learners’ knowledge and skills into measurable environmental action. Educators will walk away with a toolbox of free resources, online tools and creative strategies for engaging their learners in hands-on, place-based education about climate change, energy and the green economy.
