he Climate Education curriculum will follow the climate action initiatives and guidelines of the UN, particularly of its agencies UNFCCC “Action for Climate Empowerment,” UNESCO’s “Education for Sustainable Development,” and UNEP “Youth, Education, and Environment” program. It will emphasize resource management conceiving the outcome of the UN-Water Conference.
Furthermore, extending our support to United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, “Our Common Agenda” (A/75/982), calls for a renewal of solidarity across younger generations, putting forward several concrete recommendations to further that objective. Specifically listed is “Protect Our Planet” and seeking youth support, which we believe is vital to Initiatives meant to “Educate, Encourage, and Engage” our youth on climate action and to support the Common Agenda.
Our proposal is Secretary-General Guterres’ call made manifest. There is a pre-existing global network of knowledgeable student and youth leaders capable of implementing the groundwork for the climate education syllabus. It is wise and pertinent to center climate change education projects around those who stand to be most affected by it –that is, the youth– and those most familiar with the communities and institutions where the curriculum will be implemented.
