The comprehensive scientific body of knowledge on matters related to climate change in Africa is seldom getting through to local learning institutions. In an effort to engage with young people and future professionals in a dialogue about the impacts of climate change and potential local solutions, the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany (HAW Hamburg) is partnering with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), and numerous African institutions to organize the first "African Climate Teach-in Day", 3 June 2011. The day will be devoted to lectures and lessons around the issue of climate change in Africa, to be held in universities and secondary schools across the continent. Registration is now open.
