UNESCO to Launch Course on Climate Change Education for Sustainable Development
The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will launch a Teacher Education Course on Climate Change Education for Sustainable Development (CCESD) in late 2011. The course is being developed for UNESCO by professors at Sustainability Frontiers, an international alliance of sustainability and global educators.

The course will be launched in advance of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD, or Rio+20) and is designed to build the capacity of teachers in facilitating CCESD with the aim of helping young people to: understand the causes and consequences of climate change; change their attitudes and behaviors to mitigate future climate change; and build resilience in the face of existing climate change impacts, including through disaster risk reduction (DRR).
