Teach the Future  Wales 

We're campaigning for the education minister Jeremy Miles, to implement 4 specific policy asks, which you can read about in our policy guide.
We hope that these asks will achieve our vision of broad climate and environmental education.

Our campaign has one parent organisation, UKSCN Wales.

How To Teach The Future

How To Teach The Future

Multiple Authors

May 1, 2022

“Without climate education, I don’t see the value in going to school at all,” says Eleanor Andrade May, a quantitative social science student at the University of Sheffield (p 4). This is a disconcerting statement. When students are unable to see the connection between their studies and their future, it suggests a deep flaw in our education system. Fundamentally, we are failing our young people. But young people are taking action. Eleanor is part of Teach the Future, a youth-led campaign that aims to repurpose the UK’s entire education system around the climate emergency, and this action makes for a very positive statement. Teach the Future’s vision is for broad climate education in the UK. Futurum’s vision is to help students connect the subjects they are learning in school to real-world research projects, all of which aim to solve pressing societal needs. Where there is vision, there is action, and this is how to teach the future.
