About this event

This 2-part training event will use active learning methodologies to support teachers of broad general education to take a deeper look specifically at Climate Justice issues. A few of the activities will have been covered in our previous ‘Climate Learning: Climate Action’ course, but many will be new as we look ahead to the legacy of COP26 for schools and communities.

Part 1 Tuesday 1st February, 4.30 - 6.00pm

(i) An introduction to climate justice (ii) Where we are now after COP (iii) Active teaching methodologies to support learners to reflect on the outcomes of COP (from different perspectives) and our relationship as schools with civil society movements for social change.

Part 2 Tuesday 8th February, 4.30 - 6.00pm

New active hope themes towards climate justice, using community-alternative models towards a just transition from fossil fuels and other unsustainable systems: (i) Community food (ii) Ethical banking and investment (iii) Community energy


All courses run by the Scottish Development Education Centres are highly interactive, both to model the participatory global citizenship approach, and also so we can introduce activities and methodologies for use in the classroom. This course will make use of breakout rooms and simple digital participation tools (all necessary instructions will be given!). It can be hard to participate fully on a phone or tablet, so we highly recommend you join the course on a desktop or laptop computer, with your microphone and video enabled.

This course will be held on Zoom to make use of the interactive capabilities of this platform. Depending on your Local Authority, it might be easier to access the course on your own personal computer rather than a council one.

If you have particular access needs, please contact so we can work together to create as positive an experience for you as we can.

All 32 local authority areas in Scotland are covered by a Development Education Centre – for full details, including locations and how to contact your local DEC, please visit:
