Gubkin University joined the Greening Education Partnership
To inspire action from countries to empower learners with the skills required for inclusive and sustainable economic development within the context of the transition toward digital and green economies, the Greening Education Partnership was established at the initiative of UNESCO. Gubkin University together with representatives of more than 700 different organizations from more than 70 countries joined the Greening Education Partnership.
The Greening Education Partnership is a global initiative that takes a whole-of-system approach to support countries to tackle climate crisis by harnessing the critical role of education. As a collaborative platform for governments and other stakeholders, including inter-governmental organizations, civil society, youth, academia and private sector, the Greening Education Partnership aims to deliver strong, coordinated and comprehensive action that will prepare every learner to acquire the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to tackle climate change and to promote sustainable development.
The Greening Education Partnership is structured around four key pillars of transformative education:
- Greening schools: From early childhood through adult education, work to ensure that all schools achieve green school accreditation, including teacher training and higher education institutions.
- Greening curriculum: Embrace a life-long learning approach that integrates climate education into school curricula, technical and vocational education and training, workplace skills development, teaching materials, pedagogy, and assessment.
- Greening teacher training and education systems’ capacities: Support teachers and policy makers through the integration of climate education in pre-service and in-service teacher training, building the capacity of school leaders and key education stakeholders.
- Greening communities: Engage the entire community by integrating climate education in life-long learning, in particular through community learning centres and learning cities.
