 Who we are 

Teach the Future is an inclusive, well organised and persistent campaign by secondary and tertiary education students to greatly improve teaching on the climate emergency and ecological crisis in the UK.

We are campaigning for change across the whole of the UK, but education in the UK is a devolved matter, meaning there are different education ministers and education laws in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

A lot of our work is relevant across the UK, but we also have specific campaign branches in Scotland and England:

We have a group of amazing, well-trained spokespeople in various parts of the UK ready for media interviews or speaking at events. Find out more.


We have a team of almost 40 young volunteers working on Teach the Future. Click here if you're interested in volunteering for the campaign.



Our campaign has seven staff members, two of these are experienced campaigners from SOS-UK, lending their time and advice a day or two per week. Five of these staff members are young/student staff from England, working from one to four days per week.  We are currently in the process of hiring young/student staff in Scotland.


Teach the Future is mostly funded by donations from independent foundations as well as individuals. Our finances are looked after by SOS-UK (registered charity 1184011), who commit to only using it for Teach the Future. If you're able to donate, please do.
