CultureNature Literacy (CNL): Curricular key competences for shaping Europe's future in the Anthropocene
Teachers want and need encouraging visions of the future, not scenarios of catastrophe. Because environmental issues and climate change are often perceived in the societal discussion within the context of disasters: from species extinction to flood disasters and glacier melting to viral pandemics and wildfires. Against future anxiety and climate concerns, the concept of CultureNature Literacy (CNL) emphasizes cultural sustainability.
The Erasmus+ project CultureNature Literacy (CNL) is based on these guiding questions:
• How can we address human impact on planet Earth in schools and universities without conveying the future as a catastrophe?
• What role do knowledge, values, and perception play in creative solutions?
• What new narratives does the Anthropocene offer to imagine, discuss, and shape alternative futures?
• How are diversity and inclusion considered in the field of environmental crisis and climate change?
• How do we achieve "One World Learning" in our heterogeneous classrooms and in the culture of digitality?
• What school culture do we need for a culture of sustainability in the Anthropocene?
• How can Anthropocene competence be promoted as CultureNature Literacy?
