NEW: Climate Ambassadors
Climate Ambassadors is a new initiative led by STEM Learning and the University of Reading to mobilise experts within the climate sector and support them with engaging with young people and educators. By supporting Climate Ambassadors to deliver successful interactions with young people the initiative ensures the young people of today are equipped to tackle the climate issues of tomorrow.
The scheme will link experts with local schools and colleges to receive free advice to develop their own climate plans and will support the new Department for Education Sustainability and Climate Change strategy. Climate Ambassadors will help to provide tailored advice and training to schools and colleges and run engaging climate sessions in the classroom.
Dr Alex Brown, STEM Support Programme Manager at STEM Learning said: “The new Climate Ambassador Scheme is a great opportunity for teachers to support young people in their understanding of the challenges posed by climate change to our society. By inviting climate experts into the classroom teachers can tackle stereotypes, raise aspirations, and support effective learning.”
