Regional Success Stories on Climate Change Education Advancement

Regional Success Stories on Climate Change Education Advancement

In August 2015, USAID LEAF held a workshop that brought together professors from 14 universities from six countries as well as trainers and experts from other USAID programs. The goal of the workshop was to share success stories and lessons learned in applying USAID LEAF’s Regional Climate Change Curriculum Development and how to advance climate change education in universities and schools as well as for NGO practitioners and governmental officers. The workshop enabled professors to document achievements in adapting USAID LEAF’s Regional Climate Change Curriculum Development for the past three years; to share success stories in using the curriculum; to identify key lessons learned; and to identify key messages or recommendations in advancing climate change education at the national level and the Asia Pacific region.

Over 70 participants from Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea participated in the workshop, including professors and leaders of 14 universities and higher education institutions; training specialists and experts from USAID-funded programs; partners from regional programs, projects and platforms; civil society and NGO representatives; and other donors working in similar areas as USAID LEAF.
