What actually is climate change? What does mitigation and adaptation mean? What is the Paris Agreement? And how are these all connected to young children?
Entitled “Demystifying climate change and its relationship with Early Childhood Development”, this webinar is a follow up from the February launch webinar, Putting Young Children at the Center of Environmental and Climate Change Actions, which kickstarted ARNEC, UNICEF EAPRO and Save the Children’s Asia-Pacific regional initiative around advocating for young children’s rights to clean, safe and sustainable environments, focused on climate change and environmental degradation
With a huge amount of information out there, getting to grips with the basics of climate change, let alone understanding its linkage with the ECD sector, can be overwhelming.
This webinar aims to support these knowledge gaps. A climate change expert will help to ‘demystify’ both the basic concepts of climate change, as well as the processes like the UNFCCC, Conference of Parties (CoPs) and relevant frameworks like the Paris Agreement, 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and the Sendai Framework for DRR. We will then explore how ECD can be a solution to address climate change and contribute towards sustainable development.
The objectives of this webinar are as follows:
Introduce basic concepts of climate change, the UNFCC process and other frameworks and relevant terms for the ECD sector
Reform the narrative to show how ECD has already been practicing sustainable development
We hope that participants leave feeling more knowledgeable on climate change and understand how ECD is part of the solution to support sustainable development and empowered to support this collaborative initiative.
