Call for interest: European Commission’s Education Climate Coalition

06 January 2021

The European Commission has launched the Education Climate Coalition, an initiative of the European Education Area which aims to promote the green and digital transitions of education and training throughout the European Union.

Education institutions of all levels are encouraged to make a pledge to contribute to achieving climate neutrality and promoting sustainable development by 31 January.

A dedicated online platform will be created to centralise the Coalition’s efforts in the form of pledges for concrete actions made by individuals and collective actors at the local, regional and national levels.

Education for Climate Coalition pledges will be guided by five priorities:

  • green skills development
  • teacher training
  • behaviour change
  • linking education and science
  • collective awareness raising

The online platform will foster the sharing of knowledge and experience, connect education stakeholders and stimulate innovation.
