Why it’s essential for education systems to engage with eco trends

Youth climate strikes are on the rise.Why?Because according to the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, “Human activities are estimated to have caused approximately 1.0°C of global warming above pre-industrial levels, with a likely range of 0.8°C to 1.2°C and it is likely to reach 1.5°C between 2030 and 2052 if it continues to increase at the current rate.”Just one of thousands of hard-hitting reports and articles that highlight the truth about floating trash islands, sea creatures enclosed in suffocating plastics and the destructive threads of fast fashion, it’s no surprise that the youth of today are taking action and trying to protect the natural environment. To educate the current and next generation of leaders on the importance of sustainable consumption and production, it’s essential for education systems to follow and adapt their academic frameworks and campus environments to eco trends.It’s no simple matter of banning plastic straws from schools, campuses and cafeterias, it’s about innovation, creation and using the power of youth to establish eco-solutions that last a lifetime.
