The Global Climate Letter for Universities and Colleges marked the first initiative for Further and Higher Education institutions to come together and make a collective commitment to addressing the climate emergency. Acknowledged by key Ministers during the High-Level Political Forum in New York in 2019, the letter was signed by more than 250 educational institutions and a further over 50 networks representing more than 16,000 institutions across the world and your support has been and continues to be crucial.


The Global Climate Letter is recognised as a partner to the Race to Zero by UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change).


The Global Climate Conference in Education 2021 will give you the unique opportunity to:

  • Develop solutions on how to mobilize more resources for action-oriented climate change research and skills creation based on cross-institutional sharing of ideas, resources, and action plans

  • Increase the delivery of environmental and sustainability education across curriculum, campus and community outreach programmes through combined knowledge, influence, and community to tackle the global climate crisis


  • Explore how fellow Signatories are planning to meet their carbon emissions targets and adopt solutions that are relevant to your own institution’s journey to achieve your own targets
