Event Details

Future generations will bear the brunt of the climate crisis. We need to equip and empower them to deal with such an uncertain future –  what role can parents and schools play?

Parents and educators are a force to be reckoned with in the climate debate. Planning for a child’s future requires long-term thinking, which jars heavily with governments‘ short-termism, generating an immense amount of deep frustration and anxiety for those with children in their lives.

Anya Hart Dyke from Big Dreams Little Footprints, an online environmental education platform, will be joined by Jennifer Hutton, a primary teacher in Scotland leading Learning for Sustainability within her school and beyond. Having studied a Masters in Learning for Sustainability, Jennifer has developed approaches for embedding sustainability within the curriculum and school ethos. Jennifer is passionate about empowering young people in shaping a sustainable future together. Anya will also be joined by food educator and Mum Kim Smith, who holds a Masters in Food Policy Graduate and is Chair and Trustee of TastEd. Kim has developed a curriculum-based food education programme in her local primary school.
