All children in the world should receive quality climate education, this is an important factor in the fight against global warming, according to Christina Kwauk, Fellow at the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution, and Lucia Fry, Director of Research and Policy at the Malala Fund, reports the Brookings Institution Press on December 10.
The researchers recommend that climate education for 16% of secondary students in middle- and high-income countries will reduce collective carbon emissions by nearly 19 gigatons over the next 30 years.
According to these experts, climate education helps to fight global warming better than many other measures such as agricultural reform, transitioning to electric vehicles, and others.
“If global leaders ensure that all children receive quality education for climate action, we could be well on our way to holding below 1.5 degrees Celsius global temperature rise,” concluded the experts.
In a few years, schoolchildren, who were taught about the importance of the global warming issue during their school years, will become a massive force leading to many changes in their countries. Those changes are aimed at achieving sustainable development goals.
It is already clear that they will not refer to the works of science that question the decisive role of human activity in global warming.
Also, expediency of these reforms is not going to be an issue to these children. The possible destructive effect of such proposals on the government, the techno-sphere and the population will not stop them either. They will be justified because on the other side of the scale will be the future of the entire world. According to supporters of sustainable development, our future depends on whether it will be possible to keep the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
