Australian Climate Change Education Summit 2024

Education and action are foundational in addressing the most significant challenge of our times – climate change.

The Australian Climate Change Education Summit and Action Plan brings together multiple communities, including young people, teachers and educators, scientists, researchers, policymakers, and activists, to set the climate change education action agenda for 2024 onwards.

The Summit and Action Plan calls all communities to action. We are working towards collaborative change (top down and bottom up).

The Summit will be held on Friday, 18th October 2024, from 11am to 4pm ADST, as a one-day online event. A Summit Speaker Series unfolds through the year.
