How to make better world together through education? How to teach climate change? How can science help to solve issues connected to climate change?
International climate education event Towards Sustainable Future Together – Forum for Future Makers is organized by The Science Education Centre (a part of national LUMA Centre Finland) and Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research (INAR).
The online event combines two of our yearly events which will be held online due to the coronavirus situation: Teachers’ Climate Change Forum’s Summer Camp for teachers (on August 4th-5th) and the Global Challenges Course for students aged 15–19 (on August 3rd-4th). On August 4th, joint activities will be organized for both the youth and the teachers.
The event is free of charge and open for everyone interested.
Teachers’ Climate Change Forum
The TCCF program consists of a open online course (TCCF MOOC), which everyone is free to attend, and in the year 2021 the TCCF Online Conference. We recommend completing the MOOC before attending the conference, but this is not mandatory.
Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance from University of Helsinki. The certificate recognises you as a member of the international TCCF community for teachers collaborating in developing climate education.
The conference will be held on August 4th–5th, 2021 virtually. Before the conference, you are free to participate to the related MOOC course, which is now open. Click here to join the MOOC course.
Programme for teachers
Global Challenges online COURSE
This year, the course is based on working with global challenges on the theme of climate change.
The course is held on August 3rd–4th. During the course, the students learn about climate change from our keynote speakers, participate in workshops, and the ClimatEscape in which the students solve climate change themed problems in groups. The students are welcome to send their questions on the theme so that they can be included in the program.
