Sarah Brown is the first teacher in Maidstone to be a UN-accredited Climate Change Teacher. Sarah can now deliver up to date climate change lessons to all pupils at Maidstone Grammar School for Girls and plans to share best practice with all teaching staff, so that they too can take part in this new innovative programme being trialled in UK Schools.
Miss Brown, Geography Teacher, Maidstone Grammar School for Girls, says, “Climate Change is such an important topic around the world today that I wanted to be able to provide accurate and relevant information to our students to start tackling the climate crisis.”
Miss Stanley, Headteacher commented, “MGGS is extremely proud to be the first school in Maidstone to have a teacher honoured with this accreditation, which is befitting with our ethos of a forward-thinking community with a tradition of excellence.”
The UN Climate Change Teacher Academy is being delivered by Harwood Education, in partnership with the One United Nations Climate Change Learning Partnership (UN CC:Learn) and sponsored by YPO. Not only will teachers be able to teach their pupils vital lessons about climate change but they will also earn CPD and certification from the United Nations.
