The impact of climate crisis education is immense. Teach the Future's COP26 Educators' Commitment to Climate Action aims to empower students and pupils to make sustainable decisions, to advocate for systemic change and to inspire others to do the same in their educational institutions.
Join us in responding to school, college and university students' and pupils' demands, and protect people and planet from the biggest challenge facing us. Pledge to embed climate and ecological learning in teaching, and teacher/educator training provisions at all levels of formal education.
Organisations can become supporting organisations of this campaign by sending their logo to firstname.lastname@example.org. In return we ask that you use your networks to get us pledges.
As an initial step to progressing the embedding of sustainability and climate learning in education, you might like to 'give it a go' through SOS-UK's annual UN SDG Teach-In. This runs for a fortnight each year and calls on educators of students and pupils to pledge that they will embed the UN Sustainable Development Goals into teaching and learning during that fortnight. Find out more about the SDG Teach-in taking place 21st February - 4th March 2022.
