The Climate Change Education Network is an open collective of academics working in climate change education across various institutional, public, and community spaces of learning.

We came together for connection and support as we each tried to make sense of the events surrounding the bushfire disaster of 2019/2020. As a group, and as individuals, we originally sought connection to one another, with the wider intention of creating an action response to the climate crisis, and to address the lack of climate change pedagogy and curriculum in educational settings. Since then, the COVID-19 pandemic has cast a shadow across the landscape which has added further complexity to the contexts in which we work, play, live.

Despite the changing nature of the landscape, challenges to our communities, and the social and ecological shifts which have occurred recently, climate change education is as critical as ever.

We meet fortnightly by Zoom and have a number of projects underway which we hope will help us address the issues we see as important.
