UN CC:Learn’s 100k Challenge: 100,000 Stories for Climate Action

UN CC:Learn is celebrating the issuance of its 100,000th certificate of course completion.

It is a remarkable milestone in its mission to improve climate literacy around the world.

But we do not want this achievement to be forgotten in a couple of weeks or months. We want the occasion to be remembered and to have lasting, meaningful impact.

That is why we are issuing all UN CC:Learn alumni with the: 100,000 STORIES FOR CLIMATE ACTION CHALLENGE.

Behind each of these 100,000 certificates, there lies a story. For some, it could be a story of the pursuit for knowledge. For others, it could be a story about a journey of change.

Each one of us has a story to tell, and today we want to hear YOURS.

It is an opportunity to add your voice to the climate cause and to inspire others. And collectively we hope to generate a force for climate action drawing in many others, through the power of learning.

Join the challenge today and tell us about the actions that you have been inspired to take. Scroll down to Submit your Story!
