The North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) recognises the importance of children having access to world class environmental education and are exploring ways to support our schools to provide this.
Teachers can access and undertake UN accredited online courses on climate change through UN CC:Learn. These courses are free to enrol and provide certificates of completion to learners that obtain a passing grade of 70% or more on completion of the courses.
NTCA worked in partnership with the charity Ashden on a climate change co-benefits project. Ashden run the national schools campaign Let’s Go Zero uniting UK schools working to cut their carbon emissions to zero by 2030.
