Keynote Address
The Hows and Whys of Climate Literacy with Dr. Marek Oziewicz
What is climate literacy and why is it so important? We will examine climate literacy as a grassroots movement that has the potential to change our world, with literacy educators at the forefront of climate education. We will discuss what tools we can use and how to begin incorporating climate literacy into your work with students pedagogy. Young people's literature and media are a fertile ground for building a climate literate society, and equipping for inspiring young people with the knowledge they need to adapt to have an impact on a changing future. This talk will present you with both the challenges and the rewards of educating about ecology and climate sustainability through stories and literacy practices.
