AI and climate change: friends or foes?

Friday 21 June, 16:00 – 17:00 (UK)

So-called Artificial Intelligence is taking the world by storm and people are finding ways to use it in every field. But when it comes to environmental education in general and climate change in particular, can we be sure it is a good fit? We’ll look at ways in which AI can help teachers who are addressing climate change education, but we will also look at current issues that may prove controversial.

The causes and the negative impact of the climate crisis are interconnected with a large number of socio-economic, political and cultural issues both local and global. The two talks and the subsequent discussion will explore these connections and their impact and suggest some implications for EFL teachers seeking to integrate climate change topics into their lessons.
