THE OPEN EXHIBITION ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE AND SUSTAINABILITY EDUCATION (CCSE) was held at the Library on the 27th to 29th of March.
The exhibition received two large external audiences.
First on the 27th of March, the Green Forum Network launched the CCSE movement and the green catalogue at the open exibition.
There were members of 20 organisations who attended the event in-person and 24 others who participated online.
Second, 67 delegates supported by BETT Brazil visited the library to know about the OU projects and green initiatives in Education across the world including funded-research projects led by the UK and Brazil.
Various opportunities were discussed to enhance CCSE movement.

To make the open exhibition interactive and fun; a small group of secondary school students visited the library to explore how to make the exhibition more interactive and fun for young people; supported by Dr. Okada’s team they developed three activities to engage young visitors:
1. Voting on the three best posters.
2. Drawing their views about CCSE learning with fun.
3. Replying to the question “what are the key challenges of CCSE”?
