Many educators understand the importance of the ocean from a climate change and bio- diversity perspective. Protecting the ocean links with the UNs Sustainable Development Goals, and can offer new ways to connect with Global Citizenship and Development education. However, ocean science is not information that Irish teachers are commonly trained in, and thus it can be a daunting topic to teach. This session seeks to arm us with the knowledge of Ocean Literacy- an easily accessible method for bringing the wonders of the ocean into the classroom. Marine expert, Eimear Manning, will take us through the Principles of Ocean Literacy, and show us some simple, fun, and interactive ways to incorporate ocean knowledge into any subject. Eimear has also co-created several resources for teachers on ocean topics, which she will share as links for you to download and/or print.

DESCRIPTION: Leaders in educational policy, CPD, and education for sustainability will come together in a panel discussion to discuss the crucial role that schools play in the climate and ecological emergency. Schools are preparing students for todays society. That is a society that has caused the climate and ecological emergency. We need to give our students the education that we didnt receive, so that they can do what we have not done, protect the natural world. Even now, many people still do not understand the magnitude of the climate and ecological emergency. Schools have a pivotal role to illuminate the challenges we face and highlight the actions that we can take. During the

Climate and Nature Summit educators and students will be discussing their thoughts on an educational revolution. This panel discussion provides a space for Principals, Deputy Principals, and educators to consider how sustainability can be woven into the fabric of school life .
