Abstract
Global temperatures have soared since the Industrial Revolution some 140 years ago, with the ecosystems having a severe impact globally. Environmental issues are changing not only the normative lifestyles, but also the ethics and understanding of the world. Educating people on ways to relate to the habitat calls for adopting sustainable practices that reduce the impact on climate. Climate change education (CCE) is a new field of pedagogy that addresses the issues of climate change, but has no established model for implementation. The need for transformative learning with pedagogical approaches that incorporate diverse climate change learning experiences is required. The chapter therefore addresses the need for various aspects of climate change to be addressed as part of educational pedagogy and the need for a curriculum with climate-friendly, age-appropriate content. The possible strategies and the barriers that seem to hinder the achievement of educational outcomes are also examined.
