We believe that we only have one world and we won’t be given any second chances with it. The children in our school today are the climate changing decision makers of the future and if we don’t spark their interest and engage them in the topic while they are young, they won’t learn how to have an impact until it’s too late. They need to know now how much of a difference one child, one family, one community, one country can do to save our world. Climate change is everyone’s business and the sooner we can get this message out to our children and parents the better. We need to act now before it’s too late’.

Schools are often a catalyst for change within communities. If a school can’t teach it’s children, and in turn their adults and community about new ways of living, better ways of living than who can’.

At Bolsover the children have begun to learn about how they can make a difference one act at a time. Recycling, planting, saving water – every little action makes a difference. Te school has begun to develop it’s own curriculum to cover these topics and more using the knowledge learnt from the UNCClearn course.

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. Not only will teachers be able to teach their pupils vital lessons about climate change but they will also earn CPD and certification from the United Nations.

Fiona, our headteacher, has worked alongside Harwood Education, EduCCate Teacher Accademy and unCCllearn to train to be the first teacher and headteacher in Derbyshire and only the second headteacher in the UK to become a UnCClearn Climate teacher and is now able to help the school become Climate Change literate.

The innovative UNCCLearn programme was launched on April 22 and is free for all primary and secondary school teachers. The online training for teachers in primary and secondary schools has been designed to equip educators with the knowledge and confidence to deliver lessons on the topic of climate change to their class and across the school curriculum.
