Hey Education Transformers! 

This edition is dedicated to mother earth 🌎. 

EDUCATION SHIFTS POWER for THE CLIMATE. 

On Friday September 24th two BIG things happened: 

  1. Young activists and allies around the world striked to demand intersectional climate justice! 
     
  2. Young feminist activists demanded gender-transformative education to advance climate justice!  

With just over a month before the 26th UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COP26), Transform Education in partnership with Plan, UNGEI, UNICEF and young climate leaders have launched a sign-on statement that calls on governments to take action for gender-transformative climate education.

Read the statement: Our call for gender-transformative education to advance climate justice and sign on here.

To support and amplify the youth-led statement, we invite you to post these social media messages.

As much as we care about gender equality, education and the planet, we must also care for yourselves.
