We can still avoid the worst consequences of climate change if we start making critical changes today. This is where teachers can make a difference: by educating students and their communities about the pathways to a more livable and equitable future.

We need to build a global citizenry with a sharp moral compass who will demand that climate justice stands at the centre of policies designed to tackle climate change. This is where education unionists are encouraged to engage on a deeper level. We invite you to take part in EI’s #Teach4thePlanet campaign, a globally coordinated movement to demand that quality climate education is included in the climate pledges of every nation.

To support you, we have created this toolkit as an introduction into the processes of global climate policymaking.
