Youth demand quality climate education: ministerial session on climate education
The dialogue between ministers of education/environment and young people will address concrete ways to transform education to tackle climate change.
The event will focus on education for sustainable development, which touches upon raising awareness about how consumption and production patterns are connected to the environment.
Recalling Berlin Declaration on ESD (2021) which called for ‘climate action as a core curriculum component’, UNESCO organized a series of survey and consultations with 17,000 young people from 166 countries as a part of its work to co-develop green curriculum guideline with young people. The youth asks will be presented on this occasion, and the dialogue between ministers and young people will be structured around the key findings.
As the way forward, calls for countries and key stakeholders to join Greening Education Partnership will be made.
