Climate-savvy school classrooms are essential if we are to meet climate change challenges. Teachers and students have to be knowledgeable of climate issues so they can be part of the solution.

Our dedicated portal for teachers offers five courses specially curated to enable teachers to describe and explain:

  • The fundamentals, for example, the causes and effects of climate change
  • The impacts of climate change on human health
  • How climate change can affect children
  • The ways in which urban areas are affected by climate change
  • The gender dimension of climate change

All courses include interactive lessons, tutorials, quiz and videos. UN CC: Learn issues certificates of completion for each completed course. Register and join the platform:
