Climate change is here. Besides continuing to work to reverse emissions growth, we must adapt to its impacts, including on education. This means that not only must learners acquire new skills, but the very structure of education spaces must be reimagined to ensure uninterrupted learning in the face of extreme weather, flooding, and wildfires. Action plans are needed for education during climate emergencies and to ensure equitable access, addressing disparities from varying climate exposures and access to technology.
Drawing on insights from the OECD Skills Outlook 2023, our upcoming webinar seeks to foster a dialogue about the infrastructural, curricular, and organisational measures that can empower education and training systems to adapt effectively to the challenges posed by climate change.
