Policy Paper on Climate Change Education

Our experiences have shown that teachers can improve students’ awareness, understanding and actions in relation to climate change education through curricular and extracurricular activities. GREEEN used networking as the main process to enrich and strengthen these efforts, and as a result opportunities for collaboration between students, teachers and schools through a multidisciplinary approach have become varied and enriched. This paper presents the recommendations for educational policy decision makers and curriculum developers to make climate change education as an essential part of school education in line with the experiences gained in this Project.
