- a short resumé from a conference on climate change in education.
By Anders Raun, Specialist Consultant at UNI-C - The Danish IT Centre for Education and Research - editor at the Nordic Climate Day website - http://klimanorden.org and the Teachers' COP15 website - http://teacherscop15.dk.
Among many other climate events in Denmark these weeks the Danish School of Education (DPU), Aarhus University held a conference friday December 11th. The conference marked the launch of "The response from education".
The programme was published earlier on on this blog and the conference included sessions from a series of prominent persons in the field of educational research and climate change communication.
The conference also marked the opening of a Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) in the field of education and sustainable development under the United Nations University Framework.
The Danish Minister of Education Mr. Bertel Haarder opened the conference and congratulated the DPU and Aarhus University on their efforts.

Professor Jeppe Læssøe from DPU afterwards explained the goals of the RCE and we hope later on to publish a seperate blog entry on this issue from Jeppe Læssøe. Some of the sessions were recorded on video and they are accessible from the DPU website (The web page is Danish language, the videos are in English).
Are you a climate change education researcher or educator we also recommend downloading the latest issue of "Education Alliance Quarterly" from "The International Alliance of Leading Education Institutes" including researchers from DPU - http://www.dpu.dk/site.aspx?p=14116
