UNECE joins the UN CC:Learn Partnership!
“By transforming global goals into practical norms, standards and conventions, UNECE is a driving force in combating climate change in the pan-European region and beyond.”
7 December 2016, Geneva, Switzezrland - Climate change is a global phenomenon, and all regions of the world are contributing to it and are likely to be affected by it. It is for this reason that the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) has been working for several year on the issue.
Aware that education is a key factor to curb down greenhouse gas emissions and global warming, UNECE has been implementing since 2005 its Strategy on Education for Sustainable Development.
UN CC:Learn is happy to welcome UNECE as a partner, acknowledging that it will bring a lot to the table in terms of climate change education. UNECE’s publications on climate change and education can also be found here.
