Abstract: 
This qualitative study examines what six geography teachers in Singapore
schools believe to be the purpose of climate change education, and how this
influences their practice. A key finding of this study indicates that teachers
oriented their practice around their belief that the aim of climate change
education was to instil environmental values or critical thinking in their
students. The belief in the purpose of climate change education was more
influential compared to other factors such as the national curriculum, the
school context, or their knowledge of climate change.
