Climate Change Interactive Education By Young Environmentalists Programme
Education is an essential part of the global response and action to climate change. It helps young people understand and address the impact of global warming, it encourages changes in their attitudes and behavior, helps them adapt to climate change-related trends as well as assist the community to fight climate change through this understanding.
Through its Climate Change education programmes the Young Environmentalists aims to make climate change education a more central and visible part of the academic curriculum projects and activities which cover the subject of environment science. The programme aims to help people understand the impact of global warming today and increase climate literacy.
Our main aim is to enhance non-formal education programmes through events, outdoors trails, projects, media, networking and partnerships.
We work with the Municipality, Government departments, Education departments, corporates, schools and colleges as well as community to create unique education programmes.
We are trained to be Climate Reality Leaders and Mentors by former Vice President USA Mr.Al Gore himself and work in association with the CLIMATE REALITY PROJECTS in all our climate change education series.
In 2006, Nobel Laureate and former US Vice President Al Gore got the world talking about climate change with the Academy Award-winning film An Inconvenient Truth.
It was just the beginning of a climate revolution, and later that year, Mr. Al Gore founded The Climate Reality Project to move the conversation forward and turn awareness into action.
The Climate Reality Project is a diverse group of passionate individuals who have come together to solve the greatest challenge of our time.
The fact that Climate Change is real with scientific backing, in order to understand this, our curriculum leads students through a progression of understanding. It begins with students thinking about climate and weather, and the local impact of sea level rise due to climate change. We help them understand how excess carbon dioxide is rapidly changing the climate due to greenhouse gases. Carbon dioxide and its ability to absorb and re-radiate heat is key in understanding climate change. The changes in the climate are already causing significant harm to both physical and biological systems. Students understand the implications of climate change on the physical world.
Students are informed about global climate change and its impacts on people and how resources pose serious societal challenges. The actions we take today will influence future greenhouse gas emissions and the magnitude of warming; they will also affect our ability to respond and adapt to changes, and to reduce the vulnerability of people and places to harm. Educating future generations about the causes and effects of global climate change is imperative since implementing solutions depends on an informed public, for both societal and individual level actions.
This curriculum integrates concepts from the earth, life, and physical sciences as well as the outdoor documentations and visits, via community associations to help students understand the phenomena of climate change, the justification for these phenomena, and why these phenomena are both scientifically and socially important.
We base our climate change education of think globally but act locally, thus focusing on our back yards yet learning and understanding global climate change events, disasters, effects and solutions. Thus we design each climate change curriculum according to the organizations need based on the participants and goals.
