The conference on "The cross-impact of climate change and education", which took place on 20 and 21 October 2022 in Brussels, highlighted the role of education as a critical agent in addressing the issue of climate change. During the conference, we explored several avenues for change, but the work is far from being over. This conference was only the beginning. More than ever, we need to support learners, teachers, school leaders, policy makers and all others involved in education to give children and youth the tools to know, act and have a voice in the fight against climate change.

A number of recommendations emerged from this conference, which we shared with Caroline Gennez, Belgian Minister of Development Cooperation.
