The Class

Education is vital for raising the ambition needed to address climate change, and for building the knowledge and understanding that later transforms into new climate attitudes, behaviours and actions. To this end, the Climate Classroom will showcase some of the steps UN CC:Learn, its partners and its alumni have taken to think, talk, act climate, including a practical demonstration of the UN CC:e-Learn platform – the single largest dedicated learning platform on climate change.
