Good Practice in Action for Climate Empowerment: A compilation and analysis of case studies

The role of education in supporting climate change mitigation and adaptation has been underestimated for a long time. The critical role of education and training in climate change was given the stamp of approval in the Paris Agreement and its Article 12 which states the role of education in meeting the national climate plans (nationally determined contributions, NDCs). This report presents an analysis of 17 case studies from across the world using education as a powerful catalyst for effective climate action. To download the publication, please use this link.
