Climate Advocacy and Professional Learning
Aotearoa Climate Education Coalition (ACEC)
The newly-launched website of ACEC features a position paper on transformative education for a climate changing Aotearoa New Zealand. It has been a collaborative effort of many people working in climate change education including several from NZAEE, which began as a way of connecting and sharing, and has evolved as we saw an urgent need for a collective vision, coherent policy design and immediate actionable plans for education.
