Schools wanted for Make the link - Climate exChange
We are looking for schools who would like to use the free teacher resources from our new project, Make the Link Climate exChange.
Make the Link Climate exChange is a free programme which provides a series of downloadable climate change teachers' resources. The resources have been developed to align with the key stage 3 and 4 curriculum framework, and will promote learning, dialogue and action on climate change in UK secondary schools.
The programme is an opportunity to link your school with schools in countries affected by climate change in Africa (Malawi, Kenya and Senegal) and two other countries in the EU (the Netherlands and Bulgaria). Our highly interactive web platform allows young people to exchange ideas and experiences of climate change.
Make the Link Climate exChange will not only enhance and support the geography, citizenship, ICT, languages and media studies curricula, it will also engage and empower young people in important issues and encourage them to take positive action. This is a great opportunity for them to collaborate on climate change campaigns locally, nationally and internationally.
The programme includes:
• Free downloadable lesson plans on climate change and a manual for active citizenship campaigning on climate change;
• An interactive website platform where the students from your school can link with students in the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Senegal, Kenya and Malawi;
• The opportunity to enrich your school's ethos and international connections;
• Free teacher training on the use of the resources and the interactive website platform (available from September onwards);
• Free residential training on active citizenship campaigning on climate change (for those schools who want to take this project further and interact at local and national level with MPs and MEPs).
To register your interest in piloting the resources and/or taking part in the full programme please email Veronica Persson or telephone 020 7566 4151.
The deadline to register for the programme 23 July 2010
