Welcome to the UN Climate Change Teacher Academy.

This Project was conceived by Melanie Harwood, Education Specialist, and Denise Meissner, Occupational Therapist and Autism Specialist, both of Harwood Education. A partnership was formed with the UN CC:Learn (UNITAR) Team to deliver our vision and our mission to ensure that there is a Climate Change Teacher, accredited by the One UN Climate Change Learn Partnership in Every School throughout the world.  Please note!  This is Phase 1 of the eduCCate Project. Phase 2 launches 5th June in the first 80 Schools with a Climate Change Teacher and will deliver more than 500 Lessons, all based on the current school curriculum but with Climate Change Literacy at their core and delivered on the unique Yahki Platform.  Children will teach children throughout the world about Climte Change, Sustainability, the SDGs and the Green Economy in the context of their communities.  We can only do this with the help of Teachers, Parents, Children, Communities and Headteachers.
