IAU represented its Members at COP21

IAU represented its Members and took part in a COP21 panel debate on “Climate change as part of the curriculum from kindergarten to university”

On 4 December, IAU represented its Members and took part in a COP21 panel debate on  “Climate change as part of the curriculum from kindergarten to university”, organized by the The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).  Dr Hilligje van 't Land, IAU Director, Membership and Programme Development, spoke on the role of Climate Change education for ESD and presented examples of curriculum innovation from around the world. The conference session provided space for debate with civil society on a variety of formal and non-formal education, teaching and research initiatives aiming at informing and empowering people to better understand the urgent global challenges the planet is facing today.  New approaches are being developed at higher education level to enable the HE community and the community at large to develop innovative thinking and behavior change towards a more sustainable future.

Call: IAU Members are invited to share information on their Climate Change Education and Research initiatives so that IAU can make these visible online and foster cooperation via the IAU global portal on HESD: www.iau-hesd.net
