Teach the future is a youth-led initiative pushing for educational reform to put education on the climate crisis at the heart of the education system.
Climate education in Scotland is inadequate as learning about sustainability is still limited to a few subjects, primarily geography and biology, which is not good enough. As the generation who need to be prepared to deal with the climate emergency, it is essential the students currently in education are properly educated, and the teach the future campaign pushes to make this happen. The Teach the Future Scotland campaign has four asks;
- A government commissioned review into how the whole of the Scottish formal education system is preparing students for the climate emergency and ecological crisis.
- Inclusion of the climate emergency and ecological crisis in teacher education and a new professional teaching qualification
- Increased priority for sustainability in school inspections and publicly influencing educational rankings
- A Scottish Climate and Biodiversity Emergency Education Act
