As an educator, it's important to address the topic of ecology in the classroom, especially when climate change is already a reality. But how can this potentially anxiety-inducing theme be introduced while preserving the youngest learners from feelings of distress and powerlessness that many already experience?

This is a significant question that this training, specifically designed for educators, aims to answer, encompassing both theory and practical approaches.

Would you like to understand eco-anxiety and how it manifests? Are you curious about the range of emotions triggered by climate change and the biodiversity crisis? Do you seek suitable tools to discuss ecology with your students without causing distress? This training is for you!

This training will enable you to gain new knowledge and, importantly, new skills:

  • Describe and recognize eco-anxiety and eco-emotions
  • Identify why discussing ecology with a young audience is important
  • Create and implement age-appropriate activities to raise awareness about ecology
