Plan International conducted a global online survey to capture the opinions and experiences of young people on climate change education and their participation in climate policy processes.
The ‘Reimagining climate education and youth leadership’ survey report and advocacy brief highlight the key findings and recommendations from a global online survey and follow-up workshop.
The global online survey captured the opinions and experiences of young people on climate change education and their participation in climate policy processes. It was open to 15 to 24-year-olds in all 77 countries where Plan International operates and highlighted some of the key barriers preventing young people from engaging in climate decision-making processes.
All young people deserve the opportunity to learn about a global crisis impacting their lives and futures, yet many education systems are not designed to support climate action for reasons ranging from a lack of contextualised information to receiving little to no information on the key global climate framework and target.
The reports present step by step recommendations that all actors can take to reimagine an education system that supports pro-environmental behaviours and adaptive capacity, and strengthens life skills to enable youth to be leaders in climate action and a green economy.
