NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 18, 2018
The depletion of the earth’s natural resources and climate change requires urgent action. This Earth Day (April 22), advocacy groups around the world will share ideas to fundamentally change human attitudes and end pollution. In an interview with C.M. Rubin (Founder of CMRubinWorld and The Global Search for Education), former UN Assistant Secretary-General for Policy Coordination and Inter-Agency Affairs Thomas Gass noted that educators have, “an essential role in making sure the SDG’s become a real social contract with the people.” How are educators and youth suggesting we do this?
“Don’t plan activities for students,” says educator Shaelynn Farnsworth. Instead, “support action designed by students.” Elisa Guerra Cruz encourages teachers to, “instill inspiration,” vs “fear,” make climate change part of curriculum and, “take part in international projects,” such as Climate Action which enables schools to participate in project based activities.
Apply a gender lens to climate change adaptations and climate action, says Millennial Bonnie Chiu. “As our world moves towards critical urgency to curb emissions, incorporating a gender lens can maximize the impact of exciting solutions, as well as creating new ones.” Zita Petrahai urges we, “advocate for climate change in a relatable way” and be inclusive of peoples from all economic backgrounds. We are all in this together.
