Education and Climate Action

What does the education sector need to do in order to respond to the challenges of climate change? Educators and leaders are already driving impact in their schools and communities — embracing evidence-based solutions, innovative practices, and an emerging consensus around education as a key lever for climate action. How can we broaden that vision and scale that impact?  
Harvard Graduate School of Education's faculty, students, and alumni are exploring that question, through important and impactful work in partnership with Harvard's Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability, and through projects both within HGSE and beyond, such as EcoLearn and Aspen Institute's This is Planet Ed
