 Peer education as a mechanism for delivering climate change and sustainability education.

 

We will look at key contemporary resources in the context of delivering these topics to and by young people in a variety of settings. It will be useful to have completed some background reading  A good start is an article written for the National Association for Science Education EE117 by a team of woodcraft workers and volunteers. This summarises our STEM projects at a variety of camps and projects  file:///C:/Users/Margaret%20Fleming/Downloads/Best%20Practice%20Guidance%20Sustainability%20V2.pdf. This special edition of Education in Science (the house journal of the Association for Science Education ) summarises the current situation as regards sustainability education across the UK. Scotland is now a world leader in this filed and its brilliant that we have at least peer educator  based there.  https://www.ase.org.uk/system/files/Education%20in%20Science%20274%20-12%20Fleming%20et%20al.%20Sustainability%20Education.pdf. The following articles summarise an ‘Inquiry based learning approach’ that works well across formal and informal sectors. https://www.ase.org.uk/resources/ase-international-journal/issue-4/teaching-energy-part-of-education-sustainability https://www.researchgate.net/publication/234743418_Engaging_Pupils_in_the_Science_Engineering_and_Technology_of_a_Low-Energy_School

This  EU project CoDeS  is also full of interesting articles  around the theme of community sustainability education https://www.ensi.org/Projects/Our_Projects/CoDeS/.
