TEACH THE FUTURE?
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.
We want a review, a new Act of Parliament, substantial new funding and net-zero buildings.
Education is a devolved matter, so we are starting with England, but will develop branches of this campaign for the devolved nations soon.
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 English teacher standards
An English Climate Emergency Education Act
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 2020; all existing state-funded educational buildings net-zero by 2030
