Learning for a sustainable future

We support students, teachers and schools on their climate education journey. From reducing carbon emissions in their school to moving on in society as active citizens with respect for the world environment.

“We face the greatest challenge of human history. We may be challenged beyond our visible capacities, but that only means we are invited to rise to the next level of our abilities. And we can.”

From ‘The Future We Choose’ by Christiana Figueres, former UN Executive Secretary for Climate Change, and Tom Rivett-Carnac, senior political strategist for the Paris Agreement
