Course Overview:

Conventional Climate Education often frames the climate crisis as a technical challenge, limiting its scope to short-term, occupation-specific green jobs. Yet, the imperative of building a sustainable green future for humanity demands that we go beyond imparting specific green skills to a select few. It requires that we equip every learner worldwide with the foundations of sustainable development, planetary consciousness, and a justice-oriented worldview. It also requires that such education is universally accessible, transcending barriers of educational background, geography, gender, or race. 

This pioneering live-streamed, virtual ‘world travel-inspired’ program shapes learners to first become true global citizens as they virtually visit different countries, meet with diverse cultures and make connections beyond borders. Next, it helps learners gain the green life-skills required to drive transformational changes. The Climate and Sustainability awareness segment takes students to countries around the world to witness the impact of climate change in real time, and learn about best practices in sustainability leading to climate action. 

This 4-week program aims to build a new generation of Planetary Citizens equipped with with the specific, generic and transformative capacities needed to create a socially, economically and environmentally just society that cares for the human and non human world.
