Environment & Sustainability: Lessons for GCSE Level Students

At home learning for young people.

It goes without saying that children are the future. When we tackle what kind of world we would like to leave for the forthcoming generations, we should be including them as a key part of the equation.

Environmental and sustainability learning should be embraced from an early educational stage and this precisely is what this course is aiming for. Through a series of lessons on the effects and consequences of climate change, students will become aware of real examples of how global warming is changing ecosystems as well as the life cycle of species.

Equally important, this course will show how human impact influenced climate change, and still does, and will look at the future by proposing actions to make this world a better place to live, for us, for them.

Jump into the first lesson and get your kids started into this fascinating environmental learning journey.
