Live discussion: How do we teach children about climate change?

Join us from 20:00 on Tuesday, 25 January 2022 for a live panel discussion programme for primary school teachers and education professionals on teaching children about climate change.

This is an opportunity to share ideas and best practice around environmental education, bringing climate change into the classroom and embedding topics across the curriculum. The panel will be hosted by Naomi Wilkinson and will include teachers and experts (details below).

You can watch live from this page or via the BBC Teach Facebook page. There will also be an opportunity to send in your questions for the panel and have them answered live on the night. You can do this via Facebook on the night or, if you have a question in advance, please email it to teach.bbc@bbc.co.uk.

In the meantime, why not check out our schedule of Live Lessons, which includes details of upcoming lessons for primary schools with The Regenerators and The Green Planet.
