Last week, Dr Katharine Vincent participated in “Learning Climate: Forging shared solutions on education, environment and climate change” at Wilton Park. The dialogue was jointly convened by the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and the Global Partnership for Education. It brought together 40 participants working on various aspects of education and climate change.

The aim of the dialogue was to explore the nature of the linkages between education and climate change. This included how the education sector is affected by climate change, and how it can be actively involved in climate response. The dialogue built on progress made on education and climate change at the Global Education Summit and COP26.
