Climate Literacy Lessons

Education for Sustainable Development means including key sustainable development issues in teaching and learning; for example, climate change, disaster risk reduction, biodiversity, poverty reduction, and sustainable consumption.

CLIMATE LITERACY doesn’t compete for curricular space at GEMS Education schools as it is not only well-embedded but also an integral part of the curriculum. Using Sustainable Development Goals as the focal point big questions and lessons are intertwined around this need-of-the-hour topic. GEMS Education prides itself on having a United Nations Accredited Climate Change teacher in every classroom by June 2023, thus making it the world’s first certified climate change teaching-learning educational group.

In a concerted, collaborative effort to share climate literacy resources and best practices, a collection of curated and reviewed Lesson Plans of teachers and other partnering schools are available as open-source material.
