WEBINAR: Climate Emergency: What action can the ELT community take in the classroom?


Do you wish your lessons could become part of the international dialogue on the need to act on the climate emergency and other issues of environmental justice, while offering an excellent language learning experience that motivates students? If so this is the webinar for you.

All too often courses and coursebooks are ecologically illiterate, and learners gain little interest in the topic, making teachers reluctant to approach it for fear students will lose motivation.

The Climate Emergency and environmental justice can be highly motivating topics for learners, and are the ideal context for a great language learning experience.

Once we recognise this, we can make these topics the high point of any course we teach.

Join us in this webinar as we explore ways to make these dialogues the ones your students want to have in class and share ideas on how to approach the topics, how to design materials and how to dovetail content and language development opportunities.

The ELT community can have a massive impact on the global dialogue on climate change and environmental justice. The time is now. Let’s lead the way!
