Teaching climate change impact in VisMin

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - “Towards a Green Education in the Philippines: Workshops on Teaching the Environment and Climate Change Impacts in the New General Education Curriculum” will be held on June 20-21 at La Salle University (LSU), Ozamiz City, Misamis Occidental, and June 27-28 at the University of San Agustin (USA), Iloilo City.

Through colloquia/provocations, workshops, and complementary performances, this project seeks to promote interdisciplinary approaches to nature and the environment. It hopes to gather together teachers/educators, scholars, artists, researchers and social practitioners in the region, providing them a forum to discuss ideas and strategies on the conduct of environmental engagement in the classrooms of higher education institutions.

Its two-fold aim is (a) to encourage the core courses of the New General Education Curriculum (CMO No. 20-s2013) to re-examine our vital connections to people, cultures, and places beyond the walls of the school, and (b) to transform the learners of today into critical mass and innovative forces that work together towards a green, productive, and sustainable future. The Metro Manila leg took place on October 24-26, 2013 at De La Salle University (DLSU), Manila.  

Resource speakers will deliver provocations and challenges in the morning sessions while the afternoon sessions will be devoted to an action program workshop.
