Climate Change

ASE is involved in a range of educational projects relating to climate change.  

One of these initiatives included the distribution of a 'Climate Change Pack’ containing the Al Gore film 'An Inconvenient Truth’ and the production of teacher guidance.  The documents linked here are:

  • The recent (October 2007) court case on whether showing the film in schools contravenes the Education Act (2006)
  • The DCSF notice from the 'teachernet’ website relating to the court case.
  • An information document for schools that have not received the Climate Change pack.
  • The response of the Royal Society to the Channel 4 Film `The Great Global Warming Swindle’ which was referred to in the court case.
  • Climate change Film - Guidance notes for Teachers
