On 19 June 2024, the webinar series: ‘Building green, inclusive and climate-resilient urban communities – the learning cities approach’ by the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities, will feature the webinar ‘How digital learning can promote climate education in urban communities’.

Currently responsible for around 75 per cent of global CO2 emissions, cities – and in particular the transport systems and office buildings – play a pivotal role in the world’s response to the climate crisis. In addition to being central to the transformation to inclusive and green economies, cities are also at the forefront of efforts to empower local communities with the knowledge and skills that are needed to break long-established patterns of unsustainable consumption, production and mobility. UNESCO learning cities, with their strong expertise in lifelong learning, are uniquely positioned to instil climate consciousness and equip local residents with the green skills essential for a sustainable society.

This webinar will focus on how in the context of rapid digitalization, digital tools can be used to promote access to lifelong learning opportunities for climate action in learning cities and beyond. It will look at how access to quality lifelong learning opportunities promoting climate action can be widened at the local level using digital platforms and online learning offerings. It will explore how climate change education can be reinforced through gamification and immersive experiences like virtual reality, and will critically discuss the crucial issue of ensuring access in areas with low connectivity and for individuals with low digital literacy skills.
