Learning for a Sustainable Future (LSF), in collaboration with Lakehead University and Leger Research Intelligence Group is undertaking a national climate change education survey. The goal of the survey is to gain an understanding of current levels of knowledge and perceptions of climate change and to assess the education system role in addressing climate change education. This survey has received ethics approval from Lakehead University and is being support by a Post Doctoral SSHRC grant.
This survey is targeting the general public, parents of K-12 students, students ages 12 -18 and teachers, administrators, teacher educators and other interested education stakeholders across the country. The survey will take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete.
Responses are sought from diverse perspectives; whether people feel strongly or are indifferent about climate change and the role of education! A National report and Provincial reports will be produced and shared with education stakeholder across Canada.
What is climate change education and how should it be taught?
