Hi Vera

I’m glad that you enjoyed the module and that it improved your own knowledge of Climate Change and encouraged you to look up more information. As you said it is very important for teachers to understand the basic science around climate change before tackling this important topic with children. There is so much misinformation about climate change that is important to be able to address misconceptions and as greenwashing is now so prevalent, it is important to be able to question some of the eco friendly claims of businesses and advertisers. As you said guiding children towards positive actions and modelling that behaviour is hugely important to give them a sense that they can make a contribution without placing all of the burden on their shoulders so as educators being well informed ourselves is crucial so we can guide their learning in the best way possible.
