Climate Corner: From the Center for Behavior and Climate
How significant is education for climate action? Cordero et al. (2021) showed that climate change education for undergraduate students could significantly reduce carbon emissions at the individual level by almost 2.9 tons CO2 equivalents/year. Extrapolating the results they found from their undergraduate course to secondary school students in middle-to-high income countries around the world, the authors found that climate education (green bar, below) compared favorably with six of Project Drawdown's top solutions, ranking in the top 25% of carbon solutions.Â
Cordero et al.'s results weren't for run-of-the-mill climate education, however. Drawing from these results, plus two climate education workshops that we recently attended (the Sustainability Curriculum Colloquium, focusing on sustainability education in universities; and the Mid-Atlantic Climate Change Education Conference (MACCEC) focusing on climate education in K-12 schools and informal education), I'd like to share lessons learned about what works in climate education.
