“Education as a global tool for adaptation and mitigation of Climate Change”
PhD. Camilo Ruiz
Departamento de Didáctica de las CCNN e Instituto de Física Teórica y Matemáticas USAL
We will present the role that the education should have as a tool for mitigation and adaptation for Climate Change around the world and the challenges that arise for its effective implementation. We review three different aspects of the problem. The first is the role of education as a tool for adaptation and mitigation and the existing gap between expectations and reality. The second is the problems in the Spanish case related to the official curricula and the lack of good materials at the required scale to create a new generation with awarness and deep knowledge of the problem. Finally we propose a set of design principles based on our investigations to build new resources such as a MOOC for teachers about Climate Change that contains a rigorous and simple approach to this complex problem.
