We're campaigning for Education Secretary Gillian Keegan and the Department for Education to implement our 4 specific policy asks:
Our Climate Education Bill (in England and Wales) is currently making its way through parliament. If passed, it would integrate sustainability throughout the curriculum. For more information on the bill and what it would mean, read our briefing for MPs.

We asked our current National Organisers to share their reflections on working for Teach the Future.
A few weeks ago, on the 22nd of August, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) published something very important - General Comment 26, on children’s rights and the environment, with a special focus on climate change. As a volunteer-led youth organisation campaigning for climate education, this could not be more perfect!
Thank you so much for your continued support for our Teach the Future campaign. We are making real progress and have some exciting updates we'd like to share with you...
We wrote to Gillian Keegan: this is her response, and our response back.
Over the past few months, Teach the Future England have been meeting with lots of MPs and Peers in parliament to discuss our new policy asks and how we can ensure our next government implements them.
Teach the Future are excited to announce the latest addition to the Curriculum for a Changing Climate: Tracked Changes review of the national curriculum for England, with reports now complete for the English and Modern Foreign Language (MFL) curricula for KS3 and KS4. The updated curricula for English and MFL highlight the range of opportunities for climate change and sustainability to be integrated into these subjects throughout secondary school.
Two days ago, on Tuesday 24th January 2023, alongside a group of other Teach the Future volunteers, I visited parliament to host a drop-in briefing for MPs as our Climate Education Bill was being presented in parliament by Nadia Whittome, MP for Nottingham East.
