Canada, climate change and education: Opportunities for public and formal education

Benchmarking climate change education in order to advocate for climate education transformation

Canada | 1 May 2018 – 01 May 2020

During my SSHRC-funded postdoctoral fellowship, I conducted a nationwide study of 3,196 Canadians’ views on climate change education in collaboration with a national NGO, Learning for a Sustainable Future. The resulting report, Canada, Climate Change and Education: Opportunities for Public and Formal Education, establishes benchmarks of Canadians’ understanding of climate change, and their views on the role of schools and climate change education. It also provides the first comprehensive snapshot of climate change educational practice across Canada, presenting findings nationally and regionally. The data was mobilized through a series of four knowledge mobilization sessions held across Canada. Read about it here:
