The Climate Change Education Caravan
An initiative by Trees For Birthdays
This is our response to the Climate Emergency that has been declared, and is being felt across the world. Sadly, those who have contributed the least are the ones suffering the most. And we see a way to change that...
The Climate Change Education Caravan is a year long project connecting 22 schools in Tanzania and 22 schools in Scotland (while inviting schools around the world to join) to work together as paving the way to an alternative, sustainable, thriving future for ALL.
The CCEC will establish partnerships between 22 schools across Tanzania and 22 schools across Scotland as a way of delivering education (in a reimagined, fun, and engaging way) on issues around the Climate Crisis - including how to manage the complex emotions evoked by living in a world in crisis.
Over the course of a year (from COP27 to COP28) we will deliver the CCEC curriculum - a series of educational resources across all subject areas - and various activities to engage our students in designing and implementing local solutions to the climate emergency, and working together with their partner school.
Each CCEC curriculum resource is developed together with experts and practitioners in their field and includes classroom activities as well as further opportunities to gain real-world experience for those students whose passion is sparked by the topic. Our CCEC curriculum is designed to equip students for the future they will be entering upon leaving school - and help our students lead the JUST TRANSITION we hear so much about, and is so needed to remedy our world in crises.
Each element of the CCEC curriculum will be designed to nurture and grow the virtues and values that are vital for all life on our beautiful planet - love, kindness, community and connection
As well as the CCEC curriculum we will support our schools to plant (and take guardianship of) 100 trees and establish an organic vegetable garden - in line with the CCEC theme being around the connections of Food Security and Climate Justice. More details here...
