Over the past years, thousands of people have learned from UN CC:Learn courses and made use of its resources. But the underlying question that remained was: how is their acquired knowledge on climate change being translated into concrete climate action on the ground?
We set out to find out the answer to this question.
Following a successful first experience in 2020, we have invited our alumni to submit their climate action stories as part of a campaign to celebrate the issuance of the 200,000th certificate of course completion from our e-learning platform. And over the course of a month, hundreds of people took the time to tell us what they have been doing to tackle climate change in their homes, communities, and workplace as a result of completing one of our courses.
After a careful – and often difficult due to the quality of stories received – selection process, we are ready to present to you 11 fascinating stories that will shed a light on climate action initiatives being undertaken globally and allow you to get a glimpse of the people who are leading these actions – the 2022 UN CC:Learn Champions.
We will be releasing stories every Tuesday and Friday in English, French and Spanish, so we invite you to regularly check our website in order not to miss any stories. The first Champion we would like to introduce to you is Ms. Axelle Vera, from Cameroon, who has been developing her career in the environmental field with our courses.
