Presentation

The role of education is seen widely as equipping young people to be able to face the challenges before society and contribute to their mitigation.

Environmental degradation is an existential threat before humanity but still, in most formal education systems, there are no clear curriculum guidelines on age-appropriate learning outcomes for environmental literacy.

This webinar session looks broadly at what environmental literacy is, and how we can shape learning outcomes for the environmental education activities being conducted in schools. This understanding also helps in preparing a road map of how we can assess the progress being made, and also reflect on the tools being used to make learning activities more effective.
