How do environmental education and climate change issues relate to each other?
How can environmental education initiatives be integrated into projects and National Adaptation Plans?
What examples of success exist in Latin America and the Caribbean?
UN Environment invites you to participate in the following Webinar of the NAPS Community, which seeks to emphasize the central role that education plays in determining the capacity to adapt to climate change. In this respect, we seek to create and promote a clear education agenda in order to be included in the planning of adaptation, particularly in the National Adaptation Plans, to learn and promote behavioral changes that make it possible to move towards a sustainable development model, low carbon and resilient; and thus form a new generation of well-informed citizens on climate change.
The webinar will present advances on the Regional Agreement to protect the rights of access to information, public participation and access to justice in environmental matters (Principle 10 of the Rio de Janeiro Declaration on Environment and Development). In addition, UNESCO will present its initiative on education on climate change for sustainable development.
Welcome from the NAPS Community
