It is one of a series of measures aimed at putting climate change at the center of education. The plans are drawn up by Education Minister Nadhim Zahawi at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow. Staff are also supported in educating children about nature and its impact on the world through a “Model Science Curriculum” which will go into effect in 2023. Climate change is already taught in nature and geography classes in England as part of the curriculum.

The Minister of Education will also approve plans to test “energy capsules” that can replace coal and gas boilers and provide heat and hot water to a school without CO2 emissions. The capsules are initially being tested in some schools and, if successful, could be further distributed in other public buildings. schools, universities and kindergartens are also encouraged to improve the biodiversity of their country. And from next month all student teachers will have to integrate sustainability into their teaching.
The measures form a draft of a sustainability and climate protection strategy that will be developed over the next six months in collaboration with young people, teachers, sustainability experts and environmentalists before a final strategy is published in April 2022.
