Education, Education, Education, why Net Zero needs Education

A Net Zero world is a radically different world, education is absolutely critical to its emergence. The Department for Education's new Sustainability and Climate Change strategy is going to be a game changer in England; implemented well, it has the potential to transform the education system. And it needs transforming. To make Net Zero possible, we need an education system that prepares all young people for the challenges and opportunities that the race to Net Zero is creating. Government can't drive this transformation alone, charities, businesses, and investors all need to step up. Join us to find out how Global Action Plan and Unilever are having a transformative impact on the education system and how you and your business can do the same.
