A Year of the DfE’s Climate Strategy: Progress or No Progress?

A Year of the DfE’s Climate Strategy: Progress or No Progress?

Django Perks

January 17, 2024

In April 2022, we published our reaction to the final draft of the Department for Education’s Climate and Sustainability Strategy. When we first met ministers pre-COP26, there was no section about climate education. Thanks to Teach the Future’s tireless campaigning and efforts, it was put into the strategy and was made the first theme on the strategy. It was a strategy that, yes, we had a significant amount of input into but at the end of the day, it was the government’s choice as to what to put into the strategy and what not to. There were some positives in there but the majority of our reaction wasn’t positive at all due to the strategy’s failure to meet the necessary standards. It was indeed very concerning to see a strategy published that did not meet what the Secretary of State at the time, Nadhim Zahawi, promised.
