Please consider contributing to the #climate / #ocean #sustainability #education and #geoethics sessions at the next EGU conference, in April 2023. Please also forward to colleagues.

You may contribute an oral presentation (in person or virtually) or a poster. Any formal or informal work that you are doing to help people learn about climate change (CC) and/or the ocean will be of interest. Here are some examples: a innovative lesson, a curriculum (e.g., making CC or the ocean a central or compulsory element of a school or university curriculum), an advocacy action, an association, an expedition, research into CC or ocean education effectiveness, a survey of people’s views on CC education, participatory methods, debriefing, a piece of software or a game that helps people understand CC, NGO work, role-plays, personal action, community initiative, such as activism, a website, communication, class research project, a change in national or local CC policy, a court case, making a movie, citizen science, a school garden, geoparks, teamwork, greenwashing, publication, project work. Indeed, any initiative that deepens people’s understanding of the ocean and of climate change will be welcomed.

All aspects of climate change and ocean are welcome, such as causes and consequences, sustainability, policy, wealth gap and poverty, water security, floods, drought, food security & hunger, teacher development, denialism, corruption, fossil fuels, war, soil, biodiversity, natural resources, limits to growth, melting cryosphere, sea-level rise, water towers (mountains), alternative energies, gender issues, energy transition, climate literacy, water cycles, carbon cycle, reinforcing feedback loops, carbon sinks, tipping points, planetary boundaries, migration & refugees, loss & damage, complexity, environmental law, agriculture, forest, finance, air & water pollution, energy, building, adaptation, mitigation, resilience, soil, … .
