Sustainability and Environmental Education - Live Webinar

SLRG Research Fellow Dr Bronwyn Hayward to give a SEEd webinar
24 April 2013, 7 pm
 
The online seminar will focus on her research into ways to support children as citizens experiencing dangerous environmental change including: climate change, socio-environmental deprivation and natural hazards. She will draw in particular on the role of schools in supporting communities through difficult times - drawing on the many earthquakes that her home city of Christchurch New Zealand has suffered.

Bronwyn argues that, around the world, in different ways, children and young people are growing up in a world where they are confronted by mainly four intersecting challenges:

- Dangerous environmental change;

- Weakening democracies;

- Growing social inequality; and

- A global economy marked by unprecedented youth unemployment and unsustainable resource extraction.

The webinar will explore how young citizens can be supported as they learn to respond to these challenges in their future.
