In the face of an ever-pressing global imperative and the urgency of reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, Climate Wise Schools is making a profound impact on climate change education (CCE) and helping educators create a resilient future.
The initiative is a professional development programme developed through collaboration between the Teacher Development Trust (TDT), Leeds Trinity University, and Climate Adapted Pathways for Education (CAPE).
