Edited video now available of recent seminar on Climate Change Education. 

If you missed our recent event, Climate Change Education: Reflecting on COP26, held on 08 November, you can now view the video on the ANGEL YouTube channel

The event, part of the ANGEL Seminar series, looked at the present state of, and future of climate change education.

  • Helen Kopnina (Northumbria University / The Hague University of Applied Sciences)
  • Noah Weeth Feinstein (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
  • Bernard Combes (UNESCO)
  • And Chaired by Doug Bourn (DERC / UCL Institute of Education)



The event will specifically address the following:

  • What is happening within countries to ensure that education is seen to play a major role in building understanding, a sense of engagement within societies and to create a sense of hope and to challenge fears for the future?
  • Are current educational approaches to the topic effective?
  • How to build on the enthusiasms generated by many young people around the world to address the climate emergency in a form that encourages a process of structured learning rather than a culture of short-term activism.
  • Post COP 26, what do educators see as their roles and responsibilities to ensure that climate change remains a high priority within all education programmes around the world?
