The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have launched a webinar series to train over 1,500 teachers and policymakers worldwide.

The UNFCCC said on Tuesday that the series will run from May to December 2024.

It said participants will discuss how to integrate climate change and sustainability into the teaching, learning, and education systems.

The webinar will also engage participants on how to strengthen their capacities in policy, planning, and financing, with a focus on enhancing teacher training programmes.

While addressing the UNESCO executive board in Paris, France, Simon Stiell, UN executive secretary, said education in the age of climate change is very different.

“At one point, climate education was simply about science. Understanding our atmospheric system. The complex relationship between the sun, sea, forest, and air. The drivers of change and its impacts,” Stiell said.

“Our task is to educate and inspire a new generation of professionals. To embed an understanding of climate change and the solutions to it in every aspect of education.”

The webinars, which are accessible to the public, will cover strategies to empower educators in imparting knowledge about climate change to children and adolescents.

It aims to foster skills relevant to green employment as well as advance environmentally conscious teacher training.

The UNFCCC said at the Bonn conference in June that parties would hold discussions on the inclusion of climate change in education systems at all levels, from early childhood to professional education and lifelong learning.
