Outside the School

Understanding leads to solutions

School LIbrary

The philosopher Timothy Morton describes climate change as a hyper-object; an entity of such vast dimensions that it defeats traditional ideas about what a thing is in the first place.

 

It's a huge issue and it's very easy to feel paralysed by this, but learning how we can take action, and doing so with others, can help to ease 'climate anxiety'.

Climate Learning

The majority of teachers in the UK still not confident to address climate and biodiversity in the classroom? If you have time you can address that with self-led learning, this can be a great way to compliment live sessions offered here.

Streaming Resources for School and Home

There are some expertly researched, written, produced and directed films and television resources available across all the main streaming platforms. There is no reason why any teacher or pupil with internet access should be deprived of excellent resources on climate.
