(Climate) Tuesday, 12th April

1. Black Mountains College https://blackmountainscollege.uk/ are organising a ‘climate careers fair’ at 10:00 UK time on Saturday 30th April, to “explore the impact that the new era of climate and ecological crisis will have on the concept of a career and what the future may look like in 2030, 2040, 2050 and what this could mean for your chosen career”.

2. Here’s the OECD’s Climate Change website https://www.oecd.org/climate-change/

Lots of good stuff, including a good short video, Climate action: How to tackle 90% of emissions https://youtu.be/Gbit6GB-xfs

3. Here’s today’s weekly Teacher Tapp blog post, which among other things asked teachers if their profession should be a graduate profession, what adjectives best described the last half-term (‘hard work’, ‘tiring’ and ‘manic’ were top of the pops), and whether secondary school teachers would be willing to swap places with a primary school teacher https://teachertapp.co.uk/how-did-you-feel-this-half-term-and-should-teachers-have-degrees-you-have-your-say/

4. And, finally, here’s two bits of follow-up to yesterday’s Guardian piece comparing state and private school pupil satisfaction with one’s lot later in life:

first, a graph showing The Relationship Between Money and Happiness, courtesy of my colleague Steve, who admits he doesn’t fully understand it (nor do I, but it’s certainly thought-provoking) https://www.visualcapitalist.com/relationship-money-happiness/

secondly, a Bobby McFerrin song that seems to sum up the argument very well, Don’t Worry, Be Happy https://youtu.be/d-diB65scQU
