We are very proud to announce that the UNFCCC, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change , has agreed to give its patronage to the 10th World Environmental Education Congress.
Patricia Espinosa, UN Climate Change Executive Secretary, says: «The UNFCCC places great value on the role of education as part of addressing climate change. Both in the UNFCCC Convention and the Paris Agreement, the importance of enhancing education, training, transparency, awareness and public participation in the fight against climate change is emphasized. This Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) agenda is accelerating solutions and facilitating the work of governments in the implementation of these issues in their countries. Your invitation is therefore very welcome and timely, as we are now in the process of building capacity to strengthen ACE across all dimensions of our work. I recognize that WEEC offers a valuable opportunity to cooperate and provide mutual support in this important area of work».
