Climate change 2015

In the Fall of 2014, the association “Paris Education 2015” wrote a position paper entitled “Paris Climate 2015: Let’s Also Talk About Education.” As a result, the French Government, and in particular the Ministry of National Education, designated a Thematic Day to discuss education for sustainable development during the COP21 that will take place in Paris in December 2015.
The text below serves as a proposal, so that, in accordance with their respective governments, Ministries of Education gathered in Paris during the conference on Climate Change:
– Express and affirm the significant role education can play in the transition towards sustainable development.
– Decide to build the necessary mechanisms to accelerate an educational transition by dedicating a significant part of carbon commerce and taxation to this project.
– Create a national and international legal framework to share revenues generated by greenhouse gases.
To reach these goals, we hope to obtain a maximum of signatories for this memorandum and give it more punch in order to influence decision makers.
We would be honored to count you as a signatory who would participate in this adventure towards a necessary change in education as a tool to fight against climate disturbance.
