About the webinar

In today's interconnected world, addressing climate change has never been more urgent. This webinar explores how Project-Based Learning (PBL) can empower language learners to become proactive contributors to environmental action. PBL integrates real-world tasks into the English Language Teaching (ELT) curriculum, fostering environmental literacy and activism while enhancing language skills through collaborative projects. Key takeaways include flexible assessment methods that emphasize process, opportunities for students to engage locally and globally on climate issues, interdisciplinary learning experiences, and the development of essential 21st-century skills like communication and critical thinking. Discover how PBL can inspire students to drive meaningful change in their communities and beyond.
