Abstract

Educators, researchers, planners, and policy-makers are faced with the challenge of preparing current and future generations for adaptation to the impacts of climate change. Pedagogy related to living sustainably and creating resilience is a complex field of educational practice that involves cognitive, social, and affective aspects of teaching and learning such as environmental decision-making both in a reactive and an anticipatory framing; learning in both formal and informal environments; learning to understand complex systems; and understanding both scientific and socio-cultural aspects of climate change issues related to sustainability and resilience. This symposium brings together a set of diverse research projects that, together, shed light on teaching and learning about sustainability and resilience in a changing climate.
