Climate change is one of the most complex challenges the world has faced since the beginning of the 21st century. Far from being an abstract concept or a science fiction scenario, its consequences are already being felt and are threatening the future of millions of people. Global warming, reduced rainfall, degradation of ecosystems, increased extreme weather events, etc. are impacting the lives of millions of vulnerable children and families. Education is also suffering: destruction of schools, difficulties in accessing education, increase in child labour ... The progress made over the last twenty years risks being lost if nothing is done. Now.
