And another; Leaders in educational policy, CPD, and education for sustainability will come together in a panel discussion to discuss the crucial role that schools play in the climate and ecological emergency. Schools are preparing students for today’s society. That is a society that has caused the climate and ecological emergency. We need to give our students the education that we didn’t receive, so that they can do what we have not done, protect the natural world. Even now, many people still do not understand the magnitude of the climate and ecological emergency. Schools have a pivotal role to illuminate the challenges we face and highlight the actions that we can take. During the Climate and Nature Summit educators and students will be discussing their thoughts on an educational revolution. This panel discussion provides a space for Principals, Deputy Principals, and educators to consider how sustainability can be woven into the fabric of school life.CHAIR: ELLA MCSWEENEYElla McSweeney is a food and farming journalist and presenter.PanelistsValerie Lewis – Educational Policy and Development Officer ETB IrelandAoife Cannon – Schools & Youth Programme Executive at SEAIElaine Nevin – National Director of ECO-UNESCORachel O’Connor – Principal Ramsgrange Community School, Co.
