Session Title: Place-based Climate Change Education

Sponsored by the Nature, Risk and Resilience Study Group


Convenor: Roger C. Baars (Kyoto University)


Increasing global environmental, social and economic risks due to climate change have resulted in climate change education (CCE) to be integrated into most geography syllabi today. Research on place-based education claims people who feel connected to their local environment show higher intentions to engage in pro-environmental actions and are more willing to change their behaviours. Therefore, this session aims to explore how to teach climate change in a way that translates the abstract and distant problem into everyday local experiences. Purpose of the session is to share current CCE practices and to explore their impact on students’ attitudes, perceptions and behaviours.


Please submit your abstracts (150 words maximum) via the official IAG conference website https://cdesign.eventsair.com/2019-iag/abstracts and also email the session convenor Roger Baars (baars.rogercloud.6a at kyoto-u.ac.jp). The deadline for submission of abstracts is 28 February 2019.
