The real challenge is not climate change but a mind change
Education is the key to change the world
By realizing the urgency of climate change it becomes clear: A sustainable future is the only future that we have. The Time is Now to zoom out, to combine forces and to take concrete steps towards a transition. Sustainability must be experienced as an attitude and good citizenship- thus sustainability needs to be part of our society’s DNA.
Sustainability education is the foundation for a sustainable society in which the young generation has the opportunity to become a responsible co-creator for the future of our planet. Our home.
As environmental educators, we know that environmental education informs, inspires, and enlightens. It builds human capacity, provokes questions, enhances skills and shapes values and attitudes. It galvanizes individuals, families and communities to make informed decisions about the environment that lead to a sustainable society. Even more, it helps people connect deeply with each other, their communities, and the natural world
We need to invest in our future; in the future generation that will make history as the generation that changed climate change!
When we are talking about environmental issues in general, I think a common response is that’s a long way off, that is for our children to worry about. So hello, here I am.”
