Are you a secondary school teacher or a parent who would like to have a resource for helping young people (and yourself) understand how a knowledge of environmental history can lead to a “deeper understanding of the current environmental crisis”? Look no further than the book History and the Climate Crisis from University College London (UCL) Press by senior lecturer Kate Hawkey from the University of Bristol.
This 218-page book is available as a free-to-download PDF. The book is full of classroom activities, sidebars and resources that will help you prepare to introduce difficult and potentially frightening topics about the consequences associated with climate change in a way that encourages critical thinking and deepens understanding.
Check it out and share it widely with friends in academia at every level and with young people you know who are interested in looking more deeply and thoughtfully at climate change and history.
