Hi, Nadine here. I am Director of the Conservation Council’s Learning Outside project and a founding member of the Great Minds Think Outside program.
I have always been a nature educator in one way or another (and have worked in climate change education, primarily with municipalities and other stakeholders). I feel very strongly that ‘climate change’ education begins with providing children ample opportunities to explore and learn in nature, developing a strong bond with the nature world. From there, they need to learn about the species and habitats around them, leading to a strong grounding in basic ecology. Understanding how the natural world works provides the foundation to understanding the complex impacts of a changing climate and is crucial for sound decision-making.
