MALAYSIA: The OCE participates in the International Conference on Curriculum and Educational Instruction 2024 (CCEI)


The Office for Climate Education (OCE) is participating in the International Conference on Curriculum and Educational Instruction (ICCEI), which will take place from May 17th to 19th, 2024 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This event is organized by the Association of Professionals in Curriculum and Educational Instruction (APROCEI) in partnership with the Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation (APU).

This large-scale international congress will bring together education experts, researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders from the educational world to deliberate on the role and the impact of pedagogical programs in achieving Sustainable Development Goals. Under the theme "Education Towards Building Sustainability: Thinking and Resilience," the conference aims to provide opportunities for collaboration on curriculum and pedagogy across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

David Wilgenbus, Executive Director of the OCE, will share his expertise at a conference entitled “Towards Evidence-Based Climate Change Education,” where he will highlight the importance of climate change education (ECC), addressing the concepts associated keys, the skills to develop, the obstacles to overcome and the most effective teaching approaches.

Additionally, he will lead a workshop named “Understanding the Greenhouse Effect in Elementary and Secondary Schools.” This workshop is based on an educational investigative approach inviting participants to express their ideas on the greenhouse effect and on the different methods of studying this phenomenon in class: experimentation, modeling, role playing, documentary study. They will thus develop a better understanding of the greenhouse effect and discuss the advantages and limits of each approach.
