Climate Ambassadors are being recruited to support schools in their climate action journey!

The Climate Ambassador programme is a DfE funded project in association with the University of Reading, EAUC and STEM Learning, in partnership with nine regional institutions.

The Department for Education’s sustainability leadership and climate action plans initiative requires that: “By 2025, all education settings will have nominated a sustainability lead and put in place a climate action plan”. This applies to all school settings, both maintained and academies.”

The Climate Ambassador programme aims to mobilise and support educational settings in England to act on climate change with the help of skilled volunteers. Provided with free training, Climate Ambassadors provide settings with free, tailored guidance to progress their climate action plans which include actions on decarbonisation, embedding climate change across the curriculum, biodiversity and adaptation and resilience, wherever they are on their sustainability journey. 

The programme is looking to recruit Climate Ambassadors from across the private, public, non-profit sectors, including those from educational institutions such as governors, members of SLT and teachers who can support education settings to progress their climate action plans across a range of activities developing a network of peer-to-peer learning.  

By helping make climate and sustainability education more widely available to all young people, they will help develop the citizens and workforce needed for the green transition.
