Reflection on the Day: Participants were asked, What are you grateful for from today?
- Spending time with peers with lowered egos
- Questions- food for thought in practice and purpose
- Reaffirming the necessity and benefit of intra-sector discussions
- Global Citizens
- Learning from each other
- Politics is the name of the game
- Much greater awareness of the existing DE network- looking forward to developing relationships
- 2 loops model
- Community debate
- Shared responsibility
- Climate change and justice is a long-term goal
- Shared responsibility and willingness to listen to all of the debates/ ideas make the connections and move forward
- How we think about these issues is dynamic- ask us in a month’s time
- Great to hear different points of view/ perspectives
- Sense of being part of a community
- Positive support by this community brought together by a common purpose in education for climate justice
- Making connections between different sectors- going out of your niche
- One common goal- move conversation from climate change to climate justice
- Dev Ed needs to confront issues to do with power and how to access it
- Change needs to start with one’s self. Climate Justice is all our responsibility (sic)
- I feel that it was a positive outcome of today that we recognised that it can be a struggle to move from Dev Ed to action so it will be seen as an important issues from now on.
- Seeing that people realise that there is a shared responsibility instead of all the onus being put on young people- very reassuring.
- A coalition can tread more risky advocacy ground than an individual organisation
- Need for DE sector to collaborate and adapt to this key context... belated but welcome realisation!
- Engagement with like-minded people- addressing politics and power
- Mary Robinson keynote reinforcement of importance of DE/ Climate Justice education
