Children and climate change

Briefing and input to the UNFCCC SB60 & the Expert Dialogue on children and climate change. Nature-based Education and Climate Education are whole-of-society policy solutions that address the disproportionate impacts of climate change on children.

This briefing will focus on education as a policy solution to promote equity and environmental justice and address the impacts of climate change on children’s health, mental health, future opportunities, and societal-level climate change mitigation and adaptation. The following draws from IUCN CEC’s COP28 Technical Brief: Nature-based Education for Planetary Health and from EARTHDAY.ORG’s Case for Climate Education, NDC Guide to Climate Education, and Climate Education vs. the Climate Crisis.
