We want to transform the way people learn, equipping individuals with the skills and knowledge to empower and enable them to tackle climate change in their communities.
We also believe education should be prioritised in communities most vulnerable to climate impacts – offering experiential and transformational learning experiences. Our programme portfolio offers practical ways to drive meaningful systems innovation – we provide learning services, four strategic programmes and free online courses. Knowledge sharing and learning continues after our programmes, with our Network of Climate Coaches and the EIT Climate-KIC Alumni Association.
