In the field of adult literacy, we continue to argue that our work is about social justice, but what are we doing to teach our learners about the ‘big issues’ facing society and the planet that are often contributing to increasing disadvantage and risks to the most vulnerable groups in Australia and globally? In this webinar, I present the findings from a small research study on the possibilities of teaching adult literacy learners about climate change. I hope to stimulate discussions and learn from the participants about their views on the possibilities of teaching about ‘big issues’ in adult literacy classrooms.
