Rethinking environmental education in a climate change era: Weather learning in early childhood
Routledge / Taylor & Francis
School of Education
As the impact of climate change has become harder to ignore, it has become increasingly evident that children will inherit futures where climate challenges require new ways of thinking about how humans can live better with the world. This book re-situates weather in early childhood education, examining people as inherently a part of and affected by nature, and challenges the positioning of humans at the centre of progress and decision-making. Exploring the ways children can learn with weather, this book for researchers and advanced students, works with the pedagogical potential in children’s relations with weather as a vital way of connecting with and responding to wider climate concerns.
