What others have said about past Climate Classrooms:

The Climate Classroom is an amazing opportunity to learn first-hand information from experts working in the UN, and meet other climate enthusiasts who could share valuable information from their experience.

I’m currently working for the Multi-stakeholder Climate Action Plan in Njombe-Tanzania. The Climate Classroom has provided an extra view of what we need to do and how committed we need to be in an interactive manner.

It was definitely a fantastic learning experience. The class was excellent and apparently, it was good enough that it taught both beginners and advanced some new things about keyword research and search engine optimization.

This session is highly relevant as the concepts/ideas, experiences, and lessons shared were all interesting, useful, and practical. The most valuable takeaway for me is the application of impact-based forecasting for anticipatory action. Kudos to the speakers and organizers!
