eduCCate Global is a joint partnership with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) to develop and deliver climate change education programs and UN recognised
climate change teachers for every school in the world.
Why Climate Change Education?
More than 7 billion people are at risk from the adverse consequences of Climate Change, and many of our planet’s
inhabitants are set to face increasing pressures as a result of the degradation in environmental conditions. Education is a fundamental requirement to understand the issues and solutions to the emergency we face.
Without action, the world will fail to meet the UN Sustainable
Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.
How Does it Work?
The eduCCate Global climate change education program integrates a number of key learning and curriculum components to ensure that lead teaching staff can deliver timely and professional environmental cross-curricular material to their students. Rather than forcing timetable changes, we encourage an integrated cross-curricular approach which emphasises placing climate knowledge inside the subject matter in an engaging way.
With Climate Change Teachers already in more than 11,000 Schools, we support teachers in delivering more than 2000 cross-curricular climate curriculum Lessons, all based on the current school curriculum. We place Climate Change Literacy at the core of these lessons, and deliver it all via the eduCCate Global Platform. Children also teach children throughout the world about Climate Change, sustainability, the SDGs and the green economy in the context of their communities. The depth and scope of the project is only possible through the collaborative partnership between the teachers, parents, children, communities and of course headteachers.
eduCCate Global has teamed up with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) to develop and deliver an innovative Climate Change Education programme for primary and secondary schools in the UK. This ambitious multi-annual project is delivering a comprehensive package of interactive classroom materials on climate change for school teachers and children:
1) UN Climate Change Learn: Specialist E-Course for Teachers
2) UN Climate Change Learn: Interactive Teaching Programme for Children
The eduCCate Global program was launched in partnership with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).
eduCCate Global now has more than 11,000 UN accredited Climate Change teachers working in more than 40 countries.
In 2019 we will launch the eduCCate Global Community, a platform designed to enable collaboration in Climate Change Education. This will include shared lessons and resources, a communication network and more. We will open the platform to our initial schools in September 2019 and all eduCCate Global Schools later in the month.
By 2020 we have ambitious plans to place a Climate Change SLE (System Leader for Education) in every UK school and are already on track to roll out the program globally. We will also launch many new and exciting initiatives to our eduCCate Global School network.
