CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION AND SUSTAINABILITY

Climate is changing. Each day, new scientific evidence tells us how quickly and disastrously the consequences of climate change on every continent are affecting us. Today’s children and young people risk bearing the worst effects. They are asking us to act, arguing that we are “playing with their future”, and we are accountable to them. Whether in a responsible position at international, European, national or local level, or a citizen, business person, parent, or teacher, one does not have the luxury to ignore the facts. We need to act. 

The European Commission has taken strong action in response to this challenge.  With the European Green Deal, including the first European climate law, we have committed to climate neutrality for the continent by 2050. This is a considerable task, but also a great opportunity to change our societies for the better. 

More than ever, the complex challenges require action on many fronts. Education, research, innovation, youth and culture have a lot to contribute.

The main goals we need to address are: 

–  Equipping students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to work and live in a way that safeguards the environment, both in the present and for future generations. 

– Supporting students’ involvement in wider community activities, so that they become agents for change towards more sustainable lifestyles

–  Provide guidance and support for schools and teachers on how to cooperate and exchange experiences. 

Teachers are the key to reaching the above-stated goals. Teachers play a difficult and central role in engaging students for behavioural changes and for action that is based on solid scientific grounds and best available practices. 

Education for Sustainable Development requires participatory teaching and learning methods that motivate and empower learners to change their behaviours and take action for climate change adaptation and sustainable development. They promote critical thinking, imagining future scenarios and making decisions in a collaborative way, which will empower learners to act and participate with confidence in everyday life situations and in the democratic forms of governance.
