It remains to be seen how the COVID-19 response will change the education system. It is timely to consider how education might respond to another major threat to our collective wellbeing— climate change. Rachel Bolstad, Senior Researcher introduces our latest findings on climate change and sustainability in schools.
We’ve experienced significant disruptions to schools, businesses, and everyday life as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve seen people and systems adapt quickly to a highly unusual situation. Schools, whānau, and education sector organisations across Aotearoa have mobilised resources, thought creatively, worked collaboratively, and responded compassionately to make things work.
