What is it?

Teach the Future is a youth-led campaign to urgently repurpose the entire education system around the climate emergency and ecological crisis.
It’s not good enough that sustainability is restricted to a few subjects and that most of our teachers and lecturers don’t know enough about it. Our education system must teach the truth and prepare us for the future, because we are the future.

What do we ask for?

The campaign has 6 asks:

  1. A government commissioned review into how the whole of the English formal education system is preparing students for the climate emergency and ecological crisis
  2. Inclusion of the climate emergency and ecological crisis in teacher training and a new professional teaching qualification
  3. An English Climate Emergency Education Act to provide general duty on educational organisations to teach about the climate emergency and provide funding to enable this
  4. A national climate emergency youth voice grant fund
  5. A national Youth Climate Endowment Fund
  6. All new state-funded educational buildings should be net-zero from 2022; all existing state-funded educational buildings net-zero by 2030
