Breakout session | Stage 3

Host: World’s Largest Lesson

Education is so central for facilitating development that each one of the 17 SDGs includes a target which relates to or depends upon learning and education. Yet education curricula still remain rooted in the past. If we want to find solutions for the climate and environmental crisis and build a sustainable future, then we need to urgently redesign our education systems. This panel discussion will explore action-focused education for climate change through the eyes of young people, decision makers and educators from both the formal and informal sector. It will suggest ways in which climate education can shift our perspective, and leverage the creativity and innovation of young people to solve the problems that they were not responsible for creating.
