Mainstreaming Climate Change Education in UK Higher Education Institutions

Download PDF

UK HEIs have an essential role to play in fostering preparation for the net-zero emissions transition, by engaging staff and students with the climate crisis; the development of and implementation of solutions to address it; and the ability to share that information with others.

This working paper highlights how to foster the graduate attributes and future leadership skills needed to address climate change locally, nationally and globally, as well as the internal and external enabling environments that can determine a HEIs ability to embed Climate Change Education in a manner that responds to the scale of the climate change challenge, and the needs of students and staff in addressing it.
