Meet Warwickshire’s first Climate Change Teacher, accredited by the United Nations!
Miss Rebecca Windmill, Head of Geography, is the first teacher in Warwickshire to become a UN accredited Climate Change Teacher. Miss Windmill can now deliver up to date climate change lessons to all pupils at Saint Martin’s School and plans to share best practice with all teaching staff, so that they too can take part in this new innovative programme being trialled in UK Schools.
Miss Windmill, says, “I am passionate about ensuring the students we teach are informed about contemporary issues, and understand their role in the global system we live in. This course has enabled me to extend my knowledge on one of the most pressing issues our next generation will face, and I am excited to share this knowledge with both staff and students to equip them for the future’’.
The UN Climate Change Teacher Academy is being delivered by Harwood Education, in partnership with the One United Nations Climate Change Learning Partnership (UN CC:Learn) and sponsored by YPO. The innovative programme was launched on April 22 and equips teachers to be able to encourage and generate social innovation and prepare today’s youth to protect the planet.
