**UPDATE: This webinar will be rescheduled for the autumn term - please check back for a new date.**

How can schools support young people to play their part in influencing the global environmental challenges that affect us all? Join this free webinar to explore how schools can use research and collaboration to shape the curriculum, harness young people’s interests, abilities and passions – and support them to become global shapers.

Who?

The webinar will be led by Dr Chris Yapp, a longstanding patron of NACE. As a futurist, Dr Yapp specialises in predicting future trends and advising organisations on how best to adapt, innovate, collaborate and thrive.

What and when?

At 4pm on 20 May 2020, NACE and Dr Yapp invite education leaders and practitioners to join a live webinar exploring how “schools without walls” – open to the world and working with the environment – can engage with the climate emergency: the greatest challenge of the 21st century, and also the greatest opportunity.

Join the session for ideas, examples and inspiration to help you:

  • Develop a whole-school approach to environmental challenges
  • Empower more able learners as innovators, collaborators and change leaders
  • Ensure your curriculum is rich, challenging and meaningful at all phases
  • Work in partnership with learners, other schools, and beyond
  • Transform your whole school into an experimental laboratory!

Why?

NACE believes all young people benefit from a learning culture which is founded on the principles of challenge for all, high expectations, and support and opportunities to develop across all areas of ability. At a time when many schools are rethinking their approach to curriculum design and delivery, the challenges of the climate emergency present an opportunity to work in partnership with learners and other stakeholders to ensure their education is fit for purpose – supporting them to develop as global shapers, collaborators and creators.
