CLIMATE CLASS

Environmental secondary education – Personalized learning through facts & feelings

Climate Class is a new education concept for learners aged 15-20y that emphasizes a student’s individualized learning path in and out of formal classroom settings. By interweaving activities, methods, tools, and topics from various scientific disciplines, design thinking, and aesthetic learning experiences, Climate Class uses blended and inquiry-based learning to promote deep climate awareness and action.

The climate crisis and its impact on the world can be hard to grasp, and even harder to respond to. Climate Class offers a new educational context in which both the intellectual and emotional aspects of the human mind are stimulated. It also offers activity-based and adaptive learning that is future-looking. For this, the four learning pillars THINK, FEEL, DISCUSS, and ACT constitute a methodological framework to promote deep learning and powerful climate action whilst accommodating the urgent need for a more flexible and virtual learning environment.
