What educators should pay attention to when teaching environmental topics

Global environmental issues, such as climate change and loss of #biodiversity, are causing concerns about the health of our planet. That is why educators are inspired to make environmental education an important part of educational programs - as the Dutch saying tells us "learned young is done old". Even though it can be challenging to decide how to best present information and what skills to teach, as each year many new scientific publications are published, the good news is that scientific literature has summarized as well how environmental education can be made effective. Educators should pay attention to:
1. Teaching relevant and personal information
2. Actively engaging students
3. Clarifying misconceptions
This article explains how to put this into practice:
