To give a response to the climate emergency, a considerable effort is required to ensure that the younger generations are equipped with the tools of understanding and action that will enable them to be prepared to live in a changing world.

Numerous scientific institutions and NGOs decided to set up an Office for Climate Education (OCE) in order to organise scientific, educational and operational cooperation on an international scale for climate change education. The OCE was legally established in 2018 as a foundation sheltered by the Fondation la main à la pâte.

This climate change education, which takes place in schools, colleges and high schools, requires a multidisciplinary approach combining traditional sciences and human and social sciences. Teachers, whose role is crucial to the success of such an educational project, need to be supported by the provision of quality resources and professional development throughout the world.
