The urgency of protecting our planet is front of mind for students and teachers worldwide. But how can we incorporate sustainability topics meaningfully into our English language lessons?

In this session, we will explore strategies to help teachers raise awareness about environmental issues in the English classroom and promote positive action among their students. Ideas range from quick and easy 'twists' to existing lessons, to engaging projects that encourage learners to be global citizens. Drawing on examples from National Geographic Learning programs, this webinar will equip you with practical tools to connect English learning with climate action. Together, let’s empower our students to make a positive impact on the world around them.
