5 ways education can save the planet

April 22 is Earth Day

Taking action to protect the planet to curb the effects of climate change and consume responsibly is not always a natural instinct. People need to be taught about the environmental challenges the world is facing and about their effect on them.

This is just one simple, straightforward connection between education and our planet.

The Sustainable Development Agenda is holistic, based on the principle that real progress towards one of the 17 goals depends upon progress in the others.

We think the links between the education goal (SDG 4) and the goals to take action to curb climate change, protect life on land and in the water are particular strong (SDGs 7, 12, 13, 14, 15).

So to celebrate Earth Day, we are highlighting 5 ways education can help save the planet.

This post is brilliant! Thank you to the writers and the artists. I wish I was still in the classroom so that I could use it. I have sent it on by FB, Twitter and e-mail so that my former colleagues can use it. Phyllis
