WHAT IS GAIA EDUCATION DOING AT COP27?
With COP27 taking place in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, this year, Gaia Education is attending to promote a new partnership with the Association of African Universities, the SDG Center for Africa and the All Africa Students’ Union.
Together we aim to support 15 leading, AAU-member African universities to develop at least two short digital courses for African University students, highlighting the main Climate Change and SDG challenges from an African perspective.
The courses will also connect the students to inspiring on-the-ground projects and initiatives, to individual African activists making waves across the continent, and to courses which will help them deepen their understanding (eg. Gaia Education’s free, Local Water Solutions for Global Challenges course!).
