The Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East (EMME) region is a hot-spot of climate change. The urgently needed implementation of mitigation and adaptation measures to address climate change cannot be effective without wide public understanding and support, particularly by the young. Education and public awareness on climate change, conventionally termed “climate change education” (CCE), reaching not only school children but the society at large, is of utmost importance for securing the enabling environment for informing, convincing and involving key policy makers and leaders – while mobilising all stake holders for the needed transformation.

The aim of this work is to identify the trends, commonalities and gaps of CCE in the EMME region and to help the countries of the region to develop synergies and collaborate to accelerate and integrate CCE into their educational policies and systems.
