Taking climate action into your lessons: why, when, and how? 

Panelist: Marcela Villan 

Probably, at least once, you have heard about the importance of climate action. But, if you are an English language teacher, how can you include it in your programs? How can you contribute to a real solution to reach Sustainable Development Goals and counteract issues such as climate change or endangered species?   

Discover the answers and practical options for your classes by watching this free webinar. Marcela Villan provides easy-to-implement solutions to awaken students' interest in the subject matter. 

Villan is an English language teacher with a TESOL certification and several diplomas, has worked extensively in the field and is also a global educator. She specializes in Environmental Education and Global Competence. She firmly supports the United Nations 2030 Agenda. 

How can teachers incorporate climate action in ELT? 

Many people are concerned about environmental issues, but they often struggle with figuring out how to make a positive impact. This is especially true for English language teachers. Marcela Villan suggests that they can utilize content lessons to raise awareness and inspire action.  

Project-based learning is a highly effective method for generating practical solutions, according to Villans' suggestion. Teachers can start by tackling a global issue and then breaking it down into a more local context so that students can make a meaningful contribution towards resolving it.  

In this way, students will help the environment and they will be equipped with 21st-century skills, such as critical thinking and teamwork. So, if you want to leave a mark on them beyond the classroom, this talk will be of great interest to you.
