"Launching children on pathways to sustainable futures with curiosity and STEM learning"
Professor Dr Ilan Chabay, Head of Strategic Science Initiatives and Programmes and Scientific Project Leader of the GSSF and KLASICA projects at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam, Germany
We live in a time of rapid, accelerating, and profound changes in our complex bio-geophysical-social world. We face daunting, unprecedented challenges, including climate change, resource limitations, and societal inequity. Designing for change and adaptive governance must become the norm to catalyze collective behavior change to sustainability for the future well-being of society. Therefore, our society and future generations must learn and be inspired from early childhood through lifelong learning by STEM concepts and methods with sensitivity to diverse social/cultural contexts and in collaborative processes.
