The global literature is moving away from talking about ‘climate change education’ and towards ‘action for climate empowerment’ – to show that the purpose of learning is to empower action, and through action, learning. Often instead of talking about climate change, I talk about ‘education for the transition to a low-emissions future’ or ‘education for a climate-changing future’ because that points towards what we’re doing to create change.” - Rachel Bolstad, NZCER
