We are living in the Anthropocene and climate change is the most pressing contemporary environmental challenge globally. Both adapting to and mitigating the far reaching effects of climate change are crucial if we are going to overcome the challenges it poses. Education is among the most efficient tools we have to effectively deal with the scientific/ technical, economic, cultural and human developmental dimensions of climate change and its politicisation. Education in all its forms plays a crucial role, globally and locally, in engaging and empowering people to act to alleviate the impacts of the climate change. The importance of this role is recognized, at least in spirit if not yet by viable actions, in the 2015 Paris Agreement (via the Paris Committee on Capacity Building), the ongoing UNESCO Education for Sustainable Development Global Action Programme, and in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (especially SDG 13, Climate Action”), as well as in many national and regional climate change and disaster risk management policies and strategies.
