Education should be at the heart of change.  Never before has it been so important to teach our young people about nature.  We need to give our young people the education we didn’t receive, so that they can do what we didn’t, protect the natural world.  This means that we must not only talk about the natural world but feel it, experience it, every day.  Nature should be woven into our curriculum and our school life.  This means that we as leaders in education need to revolutionise how we teach.  Nature and sustainability shouldn’t be left to an after-school club, once a week, when ‘learning is over for the day’.

In this webinar we will explore what’s happening to the natural world.  We will talk about what’s happening with Irish Wildlife and how education can play a role in turning the tide on the loss of nature.   

HOST:

Patrick Kirwan BSc PhD PGCE

Patrick is passionate about science, tackling inequality and nature.  After a career in science as an epidemiologist, he trained as secondary science teacher with TeachFirst in London, a teacher training provider whose mission is to tackle educational disadvantage.  While working in disadvantaged schools in London Patrick developed a bespoke model for a whole school nature curriculum.  In school and community settings, Patrick uses nature as a conduit to foster wellbeing, leadership skills, confidence, resilience, environmental awareness and climate action.  Having recently moved back to Ireland Patrick is continuing to teach nature and develop new school environmental models.
