Children To Receive Climate Change Lessons At School

The government is set to introduce the teaching of climate change and global warming in primary and secondary schools.

Zimbabwe will receive US$100 000 following its admission into the United Nations Climate Change Learning Partnership programme for Southern Africa.

The funds are for the development of a National Climate Change Learning Strategy.

Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural Resettlement director in the climate department, Washington Zhakata on Wednesday said:

The existing curriculum is incapable of driving climate action, hence the need to nurture new skills that are required to turning challenges into opportunities.

There is a significant disconnect between the challenges facing the country and the ability of people who have gone through the educational systems to offer solutions.

Climate change will be introduced in the learning materials for primary and secondary education.

The Climate Change Management Department will implement the Learning Strategy to strengthen learning and skills development on climate change.

Awareness levels on climate change will be raised through the usage of education materials that will be developed.
