[UPDATE]

Despite the researchers’ frustration and bittersweet ending of the COP27 it was clear messaged that Education’s role has became even more aknowledged in the context of this COP. The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) summarised this in the following five key takeaways:

1. Education is gaining prominence beyond the Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) agenda
2. There is already a large and growing momentum behind climate education innovations
3. Governments see the value of education and cross-sectoral collaboration but costs of adaptation are high
4. There is enormous potential for cross-sectoral investment between education and climate funds
5. COP28 holds immense promise for education in the climate agenda
