The Worldwide Climate and Justice Education Week is a project of the Graduate Programs in Sustainability at Bard College in New York, USA, in conjunction with global partners and the Open Society University Network.
Bard's Graduate programs include MS Degree Programs in Environmental Policy and Climate Science and Policy, an M Ed in Environmental Education, and an MBA in Sustainability. For 2021 the Bard MBA was ranked at the #1 Green MBA in the US, and among the top 10 US MBA's for Non-Profit Management, by the Princeton Review.
We have been facilitating global climate education since 2019, first under the title of Solve Climate by 2030. We a proud to have evolved and grown in our 5 years of organizing.
In 2022 and 2023, our work happened under the banner of the Worldwide Teach-in, a global call for climate education to occur on or around March 29th. In 2022 and 2023, our work reached over 70,000 students in more than 70 countries who participated via either in-class or extra-curricular climate education initiatives.
2024: Worldwide Climate and Justice Education Week (April 1-8 2024)
In 2024, we are continuing our success by expanding the scope of the Teach-in towards a weeklong window (April 1-8 2024) to kick off Earth Month. You can participate by Making Climate a Class or Event during Worldwide Climate and Justice Education Week.

Why Climate and Justice?
Climate change is fundamentally an issue of justice. Those who have contributed the least to the crisis are affected the most by the climate crisis. Solving climate change necessitates working to reverse these injustices. That's we why include justice in our title and encourage you to incorporate climate justice into your Worldwide Climate and Justice Education Week plans. Explore our curricular partner, SubjectToClimate, and their climate lesson-plan database which feature many lesson plans that focus on the human impact of climate change.
The content of each Worldwide Climate and Justice Week activity is determined by participating educators, often in collaboration with others at their institution. We do not organize events or in-class programming for institutions, but rather serve as a catalyst and resource repository to help you activate your community.

Our team will support your Worldwide Climate and Justice Education Week activities by providing certificates for participating institutions, organizers and attendees, a Communication Kit, bi-weekly organizing webinars, connections with participating educators and organizers, scripts for short climate-plays, introductory and concluding videos for events, evaluation forms, assistance with promotion and more.
