clarityFor educators: from climate anxiety to resilience and creativity
With this project, led by Lund University, Sweden, we aim to prepare resilient future citizens to take an active role in addressing the climate crisis through socio-ecological transformation.
Objectives: Enhancing educators’ skills in dealing with students’ climate anxiety by enabling educators to equip children and youth with the relevant knowledge and skills to become agents of the needed socio-ecological transformation.
Funder: EU Erasmus+, Swedish National Agency
This approach is designed to address the emotional and mental health impacts of climate change, as well as to grow creativity and to empower both teachers and children/youth in becoming leaders of change.
The overall approach is to review and build upon pedagogical success stories of climate resilience education, mobilising the arts, storytelling, traditional ecological knowledge (including Indigenous Peoples’ knowledge and practices), climate science (including citizen’s science), eco psychology, mindfulness, and a Futures Literacy approach.
