The Department of Education (DepEd) has expressed support for initiatives aimed at boosting climate literacy in the country.

In a statement, the DepEd said they support the Climate Change Commission, especially with regard to developing “learners and personnel who are climate literate and proactive in championing resilient and sustainable schools.”

The DepEd said climate change concepts are integrated with the K to 12 curriculum in Science, Health, Araling Panlipunan, Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao, Mathematics, English, Filipino, Edukasyong Pantahanan at Pangkabuhayan and Technology and Livelihood Economics, and Music, Arts, and Physical Education.

“While climate change concepts are already integrated with the K to 12 curriculum, there is a need to strengthen its presence in the curriculum by refining learning competencies and standards and monitoring learning delivery,” the department said.

“The department is committed to reviewing learning competencies relevant to climate change education and coordinates various offices and experts with the enhancements needed in developmentally-appropriate and multi-disciplinary climate change education,” it added. —Richa Noriega/VBL, GMA News
