As countries rebuild and reinvent themselves in response to COVID-19, there is an opportunity to accelerate the thinking on how to best support quality education for all. There is an urgent need for young people to be involved in sustainable development because the generations who are young today will experience more significant climate change impacts. It's for this very reason that WWF has been instrumental in promoting education for sustainable development (ESD).
In Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia, WWF is working in partnership with Plan International and the local authorities to integrating critical issues, such as climate change, biodiversity, disaster risk reduction (DRR), and sustainable consumption and production (SCP), into the primary and secondary school curriculum. This is implemented under ''Our City 2030: Youth Visions and Solutions'' project.
