Multi-grade classes and single teacher schools have made it possible for many children in remote rural areas and communities to access education. However, the teachers teaching in these environments rarely receive training in how to deal with and manage the large numbers of pupils, of different ages and levels of learning, that they confront in their classes. These tools can assist teachers in this regard. This handbook comprises ten units, each one consisting of common experiences, case studies, sample activities, possible responses, and a summary.

Youth Xchange: Climate Change and Lifestyles Guidebook

The world’s youth will have a significant role to play if we are to bring about the widespread behavioural change needed to shift towards more sustainable lifestyles and consumption habits. It is important for young people to understand that behind over-consumption lies increased exploitation of resources, rising poverty, widening inequalities and persistent conflicts, all of which will worsen with climate change and eventually will minimize their opportunities for a better and sustainable future. The poorest of the poor, those who cannot consume enough to meet their basic needs, are the worst hit by climate change. Most of these are young people under 24, who make up nearly half of the world’s population, with most living in developing countries.
