Education for Sustainable Development Topic Support Network: Becoming nature and climate confident
14th November 2023 , 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
We welcome all staff in further and higher education with an interest in learning and teaching to the November 2023 Education for Sustainable Development Topic Support Network (ESD TSN), delivered in partnership with EAUC Scotland: The Alliance for Sustainability Leadership in Education.
Why this topic and what to expect: While sustainability is all about the interconnections between the social, economic, and environmental, we have heard some of you telling us that specifically integrating complex environmental topics into your teaching is tricky. While there is some great stuff happening – especially around tangible issues such as waste and recycling – teaching about more ‘abstract-feeling’ aspects like climate change or biodiversity can feel daunting when we don’t feel like we are experts in these fields.
In this TSN, we want to explore ways you can build confidence to integrate these topics into your teaching – both through gaining knowledge as well as through using teaching methods that allow you to feel comfortable with not knowing everything. We’ll have speakers from university and college contexts talking about their work as well as facilitated discussions with your peers.

As always, the event is free for EAUC members. Unsure if you’re a member or struggling to book? Get in touch with email@example.com.
