Teach the Future

A youth-led campaign for climate education in the UK
Sign up for 2024/25Visit the Teach The Future websiteCheck it out


Teach the Future is an autonomous, inclusive, well organised and persistent campaign by secondary and tertiary education students to greatly improve education on the climate emergency and ecological crisis in the UK.

The students are campaigning for change across the whole of the UK, but education in the UK is a devolved matter, meaning there are different education ministers and education laws in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. A lot of their work is relevant across the UK, but the students also have specific campaign branches in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England.

Teach the Future's vision is to: 

  • Teach students about climate change
  • Include green skills in many vocational courses
  • Make educational buildings climate-friendly

The campaign is supported by the staff at SOS-UK.
