At present, we continue to work on peatland restoration and to influence the training and strategies within that sector. We also continue to connect people with their peatlands via science and art with Peatland Connections, and are developing our next education projects to combat rising eco-anxiety in our young people.
We have produced several education resources about climate change, biodiversity, and sustainability. Find them here (copy and paste): www.carboncentre.org/biosphere-explorers
Our latest focus is on developing our new education strategy.
Climate change and the sustainable development goals are becoming embedded into the Scottish curriculum - but teachers still report low knowledge and confidence in bringing these topics into the classroom.
Doom and gloom teaching, and toxic positivity, can make apathy and eco-anxiety worse - so we must be clear on how to teach climate change at home and in the classroom.
