Following the success of the first UNESCO-UNFCCC webinar series on climate change education for social transformation on the road to COP27, which gathered 15,000 participants from 184 countries to discuss how to green education policy and curriculum, UNESCO and UNFCCC are launching a second webinar series on the road to COP28 in Dubai, UAE, focused on the topic of greening school.
Tune into the upcoming webinar season which will take place from May to December 2023, where each of the six episodes will explore how to get learning institutions climate-ready by integrating a whole-institution approach to Education for Sustainable Development to transform teaching and learning, school facilities and operation, school governance and community engagement.
The first session will be on the 3rd of May 2023 at 12:00 CEST. The conversation will explore what it means to be a green school and embrace the whole-institution approach to ESD, with a particular focus on climate change. It will reflect on how the green transformation of learning spaces inspires the overall re-imagination of education systems as innovation hubs for change towards more sustainable futures.
The rest of the sessions will take place on the 20 June, 25 July, 12 September, 31 October and 12 December.
