AXA Coral Live is a free live education event linking students with scientists working at the CARMABI coral research station in the southern Caribbean from 9-19 November 2020.
Coral Live features 27 live lessons designed for students aged 7 to 18. For the first time in 2020, there will be lessons in French and German as well. Lessons are organized by age group and topic, with lessons for younger students investigating core biology topics through exploring coral science. Older students will be able to deepen their knowledge of ecosystems and human impacts from a range of experts.
The live lessons offer teachers a fresh way to build knowledge, practice working scientifically, inspire STEM careers and develop environmental stewardship. They are also a great way to deliver education for the UN Sustainable Development Goals particularly SDG 13 on climate change and SDG 14 on the ocean.
The coral reef is the most biodiverse of any ecosystem on the planet and directly support over 500 million people across the world. They are also among the most threatened ecosystems on Earth, with the coral reefs in all 29 reef-containing World Heritage sites ceasing to exist by the end of the century if carbon emissions are not reduced.
