In August 2022, VVOB – education for development, Fundisa For Change, and GreenMatter, as partners in the Keep It Cool: Climate Change Education (KIC:CCE) project, hosted a multi-sectoral Climate Change Education Symposium to engage in dialogue around the role of teacher education in Climate Change in South Africa. The symposium brought together policy influencers, educators, researchers and stakeholders at all levels. Delegates shared research and approaches that have already been piloted and identified key leverage points for the mainstreaming of Climate Change into curriculum and teacher development.
The Fundisa for Change team lead by Mrs. Shanu Misser focused on stakeholder engagement. The team presented the Fundisa for Change online learning platform and discussed the role the platform can play in the teacher development and uptake of Climate Change into the school curriculum. Input can comments of the stakeholder were welcomed. Here is a link to the Event’s YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtjGYYlKOzY
