It's time to
TEACH THE FUTURE
The climate crisis is the biggest issue of our time and our learning needs to reflect that.
We demand reform to the education system.
WE CALL FOR
A government commissioned review into how the whole of the English formal education system is preparing students for the climate emergency and ecological crisis
Inclusion of the climate emergency and ecological crisis in teacher training and a new professional teaching qualification
An English Climate Emergency Education Act to provide general duty on educational organisations to teach about the climate emergency and provide funding to enable this
A national climate emergency youth voice grant fund
A national Youth Climate Endowment Fund
All new state-funded educational buildings should be net-zero from 2022; all existing state-funded educational buildings net-zero by 2030
Teach the Future is a youth-led campaign to urgently repurpose the entire education system around the climate emergency and ecological crisis.
It’s not good enough that sustainability is restricted to a few subjects and that most of our teachers and lecturers don’t know enough about it. Our education system must teach the truth and prepare us for the future, because we are the future.
