This event will discuss ways to prepare education systems to better withstand climate change impacts and develop climate-smart populations by mobilizing cross-sector partnerships behind a common framework for climate action in and through education.


Global development debates, needs and resources are being re-shaped by the urgent threat of climate change and environmental degradation. The populations most exposed to these impacts are also the most vulnerable, especially girls and women. Education can be a powerful force to advance our capabilities for climate adaptation and mitigation.


Wilton Park, in partnership with the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and GPE, convenes key actors, representatives and stakeholders to develop a shared understanding of the challenges and priorities across different contexts, and to identify key elements for an action plan on ‘climate smart’ education systems.
