The Hub, City Church
Dyfatty Street , Swansea SA1 1QQ , United Kingdom

The purpose of this event is to explore ways to link the new Curriculum for Wales and climate change education by bringing together secondary school teachers, university researchers and the third sector to spark ideas for lessons around climate change.

The researchers will bring established STEM outreach activities for teachers to try and we’ll also hear presentations from teachers who have already delivered successful lessons on climate change.

There is no charge we will be providing lunch for delegates.
