Climate change is a matter for all humanity, and its impacts cannot be addressed without the participation of all generations. In particular, young people are the least responsible for climate change, yet they bear the brunt of its consequences for the longest duration. Thus, it is essential to provide quality climate change education by reinforcing the capacity of educators and empowering youth in the efforts to address climate change.
Incheon Metropolitan City Office of Education and ESCAP Subregional Office for East and North-East Asia will jointly organize the 2023 Incheon International Education Forum on 30-31 May 2023 in Incheon, Republic of Korea, under the theme of “Policies and Practices on Climate Change Education in North-East Asia”. The forum aims to promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences focusing on climate change education and discuss how stakeholders can collaborate to provide effective climate education to the youth.
