    Education for a Just Energy Transition

    • 5th December
    • 11:00 - 12:00
    • COP 28 Greening Education Hub

    Education plays an important role in accelerating the transition to a sustainable energy future. Exposing young people to renewable energy related topics and careers early in their schooling will stimulate their interest in pursuing further education and training and eventually careers in the sector. It also helps to create a knowledgeable society with an understanding of the green economy and their role in achieving a transformation of our energy systems. Recognising this, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the UAE Ministry of Education, with the support of the Permanent Mission of the UAE to IRENA, embarked on an innovative collaboration to develop curriculum guidance and resources and share best practices. This session will showcase some of the outcomes of this collaboration which also feed into the broader activities of the Energy Transition Education Network, such as the Teaching for Net Zero Campaign, as well as the UNESCO-led Greening Education Partnership.
