Conducted by Christina Kwauk, the Education International Climate Change Education Ambition Report Card examines the level of ambition on climate education and the extent to which countries prioritise education as a tool for climate action.
The research analysed 73 updated, revised, or new Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) as of July 30, 2021. NDCs are countries’ national climate action plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change.
The research scored NDCs along 6 criteria based on the Education International Manifesto on Quality Climate Change Education for All.
Results are dismal, with countries failing across the board.
