Climate Change Debate on Glow

From Education Scotland -

The Education Scotland Global Citizenship team is inviting secondary schools to join in the Great Climate Change Debate on Glow. 

This is a series of Glow Meets bringing together a panel of scientists and experts to answer questions and help learners navigate their way through climate fact, fiction and controversy.

In November last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change published a report which warned that climate change is likely to lead to more extreme weather. Within weeks of this launch, Scotland was battered by severe flooding and hurricane force winds which brought much of the country to a standstill.

Is our climate already changing? What will climate change mean for Scotland? How can we respond positively and adapt to the changes ahead?

Join the discussion in the Glow Meets:

  • Glow Meet 1: Our changing weather and climate – 23 January 2012
  • Glow Meet 2: Climate science – evidence versus controversy – 30 January 2012
  • Glow Meet 3: Adapting to climate change – 6 February 2012

Each Glow Meet will take place from 2pm to 3:15pm.

Visit the Developing Global Citizenship blog for more details. Question and views can be submitted in advance through the Glow Climate Change Forum (requires Glow login).

For resources and videos on climate change visit Weather and Climate Change, Exploring Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Education Glow page about Climate Change (requires Glow login).
