  • Article 6 of the UNFCCC addresses education, training and public awareness and access to information in relation to climate change whereby UNESCO should assist countries to implement activities in the area of education.

  • The Bonn Declaration, requests UNESCO to “intensify efforts and initiatives to put climate change education higher on the international agenda, in the framework of the DESD, in the context of UNESCO’s strategy for action on climate change, and as a component of UN-wide action.”

  • The UNESCO International Seminar on Climate Change Education (2009) requested UNESCO to “accelerate the mainstreaming of ESD and with it CCE in all its components, in all sectors and levels of education, public awareness and training worldwide



Changing climate is making it harder to deliver quality education and to keep learners safe.

Education offers an untapped opportunity to combat climate change.

  • Integrative – not only the ecological and the environmental, not only the present, not only the local, not only the human world

  • Critical - questioning continuous economic growth and consumerism and associated lifestyles

  • Transformative – exploration of alternative lifestyles (e.g. ‘voluntary simplicity’), values and systems that break from existing ones that are inherently unsustainable

  • Contextual –taking into account the local context

For educators informative and primarily environmental work

  • Climate Frontlines


  • Connect4Climate (C4C)


Climate frontlines

An Internet forum “On the Frontlines of Climate Change” reaches more than 50,000 people worldwide and connects islanders from the Atlantic, Caribbean, Indian and Pacific sub regions. It solicits inputs from small island and indigenous communities concerning local level observations of climate change impacts, and their efforts to cope and adapt


Climate frontlines


Sandwatch seeks to change the lifestyle and habits of children, youth and adults on a community wide basis, to adapt to climate change by building ecosystem resilience, and to develop awareness of the fragile nature of the marine and coastal environment and the need to use it wisely.
