Join us for a conversation about climate education in global cities! The Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN in 2015 recognize the impact of urban spaces on sustainability. Major cities around the world published sustainability and climate action plans, New York City and Tel Aviv included. Serious engagament with these issues requires incorperation of the local education system into the broader agenda. Education as a fundamental social infrastructure promotes and develops learning, awareness, attitudes and skills. Through education, the way to a brighter and more sustainable future is paved.
Through vivid examples the event will introduce both cities' approaches and programs in the public education systems, while discussing various stakeholders involved in the process.
