Climate Action Project

26 September - 8 November

Free

The Climate Action Project will be launched on September 26, 2022 for the sixth consecutive year!

Imagine a world in which youngsters across 6 continents connect virtually and solve one of the world’s most pressing challenges: Climate Change. The Climate Action Project is a free 6-week project allowing teachers and students ages 3-21 to collaborate on environmental topics. Over the course of the project, classrooms will explore causes and effects of climate change and will have the opportunity to develop solutions and take action.

Our project unites teachers and students across 149 countries. The Climate Action Project aims to offer opportunities to both teachers and students, allowing them to learn in authentic ways. This project is supported by Dr. Jane Goodall, Queen Elizabeth II, world leaders and Ministries of Education across 16 countries. During the past years the project was featured by media across 45 countries including National Geographic, BBC and CNN.

Teachers will become part of a global community and receive badges and certificate. The Climate Action Project involves a global tree planting PlantED. Our app allows students and teachers to keep track of their impact. The project aims to change students’ behavior and societies’ mindset concerning climate change and environmental threats through education.
