Ahead of the UN Climate Action Summit on 23 September 2019, networks and institutions working in Further and Higher Education, including the CA, are coming together to add their support to this letter that will be shared with key government officials and the media before the summit.
The aim is to get as many networks and institutions as possible on board in order to showcase these commitments towards attainment of SDG 4 (Education) and 13 (Climate Change). By signing this letter, we are committing to collectively step up the challenge by supporting a three-point plan which includes:
- Mobilizing more resources for action-oriented climate change research and skills creation;
- Committing to going carbon neutral by 2030 or 2050 at the very latest;
- Increasing the delivery of environmental and sustainability education across curriculum, campus and community outreach programmes.
We call on governments and other education institutions to join us in declaring a climate emergency and back this up with actions that will help create a better future for both people and our planet.
