Klimaaktivisme – for en kritisk pædagogik i skolen

The escalating destruction of the climate has caused children and young people around the world to react. Greta Thunberg is a symbol of a rising activism for the climate. To support this process and especially the teachers’ work in the school, we explore how a reformulation of the critical-pedagogical tradition can mobilize students in the school so that they can implement realistic and responsible climate action. To this end, we have developed a model for analysis. The model is theoretical and normative and is designed with inspiration from national and international research projects in order to support a political formation process and the development of social competences across the school disciplines.
