Action for climate empowerment

Strengthening climate change education, participation and awareness

Issues

The first decisions taken under the Paris Rules for the UNFCCC in May 2018 were in the areas of education, training, public awareness, public participation and access to information. In this way, the Convention has established guidelines to implement Article 12 of the Paris Agreement, urging countries to take measures to promote and strengthen education, participation and awareness on climate change.

Article 12 of the Paris Agreement recognises programmes that improving climate change education, as well as training, awareness and participation, are key elements for improving global action on climate change, as they promote changes in lifestyles, attitudes and behaviours that foster a low-emissions climate and resilient, sustainable development.

Toward this end, it is also essential to deepen coordination and cooperation between Ministries of Environment and Education and the establishment of partnerships between governments and non-governmental actors.
