Teach for the Planet

Campaigns

Educators everywhere are standing up for the planet and for their students. We have a crucial role to play when it comes to climate action. What we teach matters. The survival of our students matters. We must inspire students and communities to action.

Teach for the Planet aims to ensure that climate education, based on science and with a civic action focus, becomes as fundamental as teaching reading and writing.

The campaign will drive global mobilisation for quality climate education leading up to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in November 2021.
