The extraordinary 7,200 km non-stop relay from Scotland to Egypt carrying a climate change message from young people to the decision-makers at COP 27.

Case Studies on Adaptation and Climate Resilience in Schools and Educational Settings

Preparing younger generations in Africa and worldwide is fundamental for building a climate-resilient future. Education encourages people to change their attitudes and behaviour and enables them to be part of the solutions, while also empowering them to make informed decisions. Climate change education in classrooms helps young people understand the impact of global warming and learn how to adapt to climate change, and can motivate young people to take action.

Whole School Approaches to Sustainability: Exemplary Practices from around the world

A Whole School Approach (WSA) provides a framework for re-orienting and redesigning education considering emerging global sustainability challenges. It invites a holistic, systemic, co-creative and reflexive effort by all stakeholders involved in education to meaningfully engage students in complex sustainability challenges. This report provides an analysis of practical examples of the use of a WSA to help achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) - Quality Education for all.

Learning

The course introduces the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – the set of globally recognized goals that aim to secure a sustainable, peaceful, prosperous, and equitable life on Earth for everyone now and in the future by 2030. Yes, the SDGs are indeed ambitious and need the participation of all of us! That is also why this course will provide teachers with specific ideas for how they can get involved and help achieve these goals through their school and the local community.
