007 - Nicolene du Preez - Green School Bali Educator
Ecophobia or biophilia? Kids (and parents) today are being overwhelmed with pictures of burning fires, melting ice and plastic-filled oceans and many are feeling lost at what to do and how their little steps can truly make an impact.
So how do we approach topics like climate change and waste, so our children will feel empowered instead of scared, conscious instead of detached and feel ownership to their actions as our regenerative ambassadors?
Through Mathilde's educator course at The Green School she looked at approaches to how we can teach sustainability to kids holistically, and specifically spoke to Dr. Nicolene du Preez, Lower School Green Studies Program Developer and Integration Specialist on the topic of how we best parent with these challenges we are faced with.
In this podcast we look at:
The challenges of being a sustainable parent today
How we can be role models?
How we can talk to our kids about plastic pollution & climate change in a language the understand & without scaring them?
How can we work together as a conscious and mindful family?
What – on a more concrete level we can do together day-to-day to reduce energy, water & waste & preserve & regenerate our nature.
