The Office for Climate Education participates in the second Meeting of the Red STEM Latam
The Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education (TEC) hosted the members of the Red STEM Latam at its second regional meeting, which took place from January 16 to 19, 2023, in Monterrey, Mexico. This event provided a space where collective efforts and cross-sector partnerships made it possible to highlight and energize lines of action in support of STEM/STEAM education for all corners of Latin America.
The second Meeting of the Red STEM Latinoamérica is co-organized by the Institute for the Future of Education (IFE) of the Monterrey TEC, INNOVEC, and the International Siemens Stiftung Foundation. It also featured the participation of the Office for Climate Education. The sessions were designed in a hybrid agenda (open broadcasts and closed working sessions for in-person attendees) consisting of workshops, committees, panels, and working sessions by nodes. The purpose was to break down boundaries, shorten paths, reduce barriers to innovation, and promote lifelong learning. The Red STEM Latam, an ecosystem composed of more than 180 institutions from 14 countries in the region, invites all stakeholders interested in promoting educational innovation with a STEM focus to participate in the open spaces of its second Meeting.
Through collective efforts, the event aimed to impact and transform pedagogical practices through a common regional agenda aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the definition of action plans for 2025.
Over the course of the four days, the Office for Climate Education conducted a workshop on public policies in climate change education for the "public policy node." This workshop focused on sharing best practices derived from its ALEC (Latin America for Climate Education) project. This newly formed group included the participation of international organizations such as UNICEF and UNESCO Mexico, as well as education ministries from Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and educational undersecretaries from various Mexican states and Peru.
