Education - under the weather. Impacts of climate change on education. ( Text document )

( 2012 )

Climate change is a major problem in terms of development and one of the challenges is to identify actions that can buttress development efforts so as to build societies that are more resilient to climate change risks. However, no climate change mitigation or adaptation is possible without deep-seated and real changes in attitudes and behaviours. Such a revolution would call for two things. First of all, the idea is to enable the most vulnerable of population groups to be at the heart of climate change mitigation and adaptation policies themselves, and in particular, to promote the involvement of children who are the real agents of change. Subsequently, this also presupposes acknowledging the major role that education can play in this perspective and supporting initiatives in this regard. In fact, education can promote disaster preparedness and risk reduction, promote environmental conservation, and enable the identification of gradual transformations brought about by climate change.

UNESCO ( 2013 )

Education for disaster preparedness can provide life-saving and life-sustaining information and skills that protect in particular children and young people during and after emergencies.

Education therefore has a vital role to play in preparing communities and building disaster resilient societies and safe lives. UNESCO provides tools for integrating Disaster Risk Reduction into schools and provides training for teachers and educators on how to educate children and youth to prepare for disasters.

Chapter 5) The Role of Education in the Sustainable Development Agenda: Empowering a learning society for sustainability through quality education; in IGES (2015) "Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals: From agenda to action". ( Text document )

Robert J. DIDHAM & Paul OFEI-MANU ( 2015 )

This chapter examines the current proposal for SDG 4 on education and the Education 2030 agenda with a critical perspective on how they may best galvanise the achievement of sustainable development in an integrated and inclusive manner. Section 1 highlights the benefits that education has for human development and sustainable development, and section 2 reviews the two parallel tracks in education related to these historical distinctions and argues that these two tracks must be harmonised within the post-2015 development agenda for overall effectiveness. Section 3 considers how education could be operationalised under the SDGs and considers the key means of implementation (MOI) for the education sector. The chapter concludes by recommending two ways in which SDG 4 and the Education 2030 agenda may be strengthened to support achievement of a learning society for sustainability. First, an enhanced understanding on the importance of quality education – elucidated in the framing of education for sustainable development – should be integrated throughout the implementation of SDG 4 and the Education 2030 agenda. Second, an appreciation of education as a cross-cutting means of implementation for advancing achievement across the post-2015 development agenda should be further coordinated under the SDGs framework and its implementation.

Sea Change will move to bring about real actions using behavioural and social change methodologies. Building upon the latest social research on citizen and stakeholder attitudes, perceptions and values, the Sea Change partnership will design and implement mobilisation activities focused on education, community, governance actors and directly targeted at citizens. These actions will be assessed for their effectiveness which, in turn, will allow the project to improve its techniques and spread a “Sea Change” in behaviour across Europe.
