"Climate Change Teachers for Every School Program”
Climate Change is a huge threat to human existence – larger than anything humanity has ever experienced.
We have only a small window of about a decade to turn the situation around globally
Everywhere on the planet we need to do all we can to mitigate and adapt to the changes.
The consequence is that we need to completely overhaul the way we live, eat, drink, etc. That enormous change is only possible if it becomes an overwhelming movement of change in every family, town, state, country and around the world.
The program has two big pillars:
Climate education: Understanding the threat
Climate action: Fundamentally changing the way we live into a sustainable and more just way, caring for all life and the land we live on and live off in deep respect for nature.
The program will be shaped on a viral form of “Teach the Teachers”
Meaning: Here one teacher turns 20 pupils into 20 teachers, who turn 400 pupils into 400 teachers , who turn 8000 pupils into ….. etc. Until we have reached out to all of Pakistan, and a substantial part of the population is activated into making the great turnaround.
Goal 4: Quality education
Since 2000, there has been enormous progress in achieving the target of universal primary education. The total enrolment rate in developing regions reached 91 percent in 2015, and the worldwide number of children out of school has dropped by almost half. There has also been a dramatic increase in literacy rates, and many more girls are in school than ever before. These are all remarkable successes.
Progress has also been tough in some developing regions due to high levels of poverty, armed conflicts and other emergencies. In Western Asia and North Africa, ongoing armed conflict has seen an increase in the number of children out of school. This is a worrying trend. While Sub-Saharan Africa made the greatest progress in primary school enrolment among all developing regions – from 52 percent in 1990, up to 78 percent in 2012 – large disparities still remain. Children from the poorest households are up to four times more likely to be out of school than those of the richest households. Disparities between rural and urban areas also remain high.
Achieving inclusive and quality education for all reaffirms the belief that education is one of the most powerful and proven vehicles for sustainable development. This goal ensures that all girls and boys complete free primary and secondary schooling by 2030. It also aims to provide equal access to affordable vocational training, to eliminate gender and wealth disparities, and achieve universal access to a quality higher education.
