In this Birds of a Feather, we will discuss the roles of computing education in preparing global citizens to understand and address the disparate impacts of climate change in local and global contexts. We intend to have open discussions on the challenges and opportunities related to connecting computing education with climate change and the injustices these changes exacerbate. We will focus discussions around three sets of questions: 1) How can we connect computing education with justice-centric perspectives on understanding and addressing climate change? 2) What are the relationships between computing and climate? How do existing framings of computing ignore, misunderstand, or misteach computing’s environmental impact? 3) How might climate justice challenge traditional notions of “development” and “progress” in computing? How do we adjust pedagogies accordingly? We invite all computing educators, researchers, administrators, practitioners and anyone else with any level of curiosity about climate change to join this discussion (because it affects all of us!). Expected outcomes for this Birds of a Feather include sharing resources and experiences to build a community for knowledge sharing and collaborations.
