Teaching and Supporting Climate Change Resilience

Teaching and Supporting Climate Change Resilience
How can educators support young people with climate education and wellbeing?

For this recorded webinar in May 2023, we were joined by passionate young people from the Next Generation Conversation, a coalition of climate change activists aged 9 - 15yrs old, based in Ōtautahi Christchurch.

Climate educator Sian Carvell, who has worked with these young people for over five years, is also the author of Huringa Āhuarangi: whakareri mai kia haumaru āpōpō | Climate Change: prepare today, live well tomorrow’. She was joined by Jenny Ritchie and Ali Glasgow, who were part of the team that developed Te Tai Unuora | Climate Wellbeing Guide, which has recently been updated.

Watch the highlights video to hear:

  • Advice and insights from Caitlin, Hazel, Joel and Keegan (first 20 minutes)
  • Key messages from Sian, Jenny and Ali about the importance of climate education and wellbeing for our young people (last 10 minutes)

It has been amazing to be a part of this group. To be listened to, to be heard, and for adults to take us seriously. Not just to be seen, to be really heard. It has been an awesome opportunity to change problems. To look back and say, I was part of that. It is empowering. – Caitlin Rees
