Our Teach-In

Last month on 27th August, Teach the Future organised a climate education Teach-In in Central London. In response to the recent release of the Department for Education's Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy and the end of yet another year of schooling where young people have been failed due to a lack of environmental education, our Teach-In provided an educational and motivational space for young people, educators and key stakeholders to come together. We provided a platform for people from all walks of life to provide their insight into how we should tackle the systemic failures in climate education, with us hearing speeches and mock "lessons" from our volunteers and supporters.
