Code Red for Humanity
“Code Red for Humanity” – António Guterres- UN Secretary-General
Saving our planet starts with understanding it.
Increasing population, global warming and the current global health crisis are catalytic factors causing collateral damage to our environment and accelerating the negative effects of climate change. Research shows that the world needs to cut its emissions at least by half until 2030 and reach net-zero by mid-century to prevent the worst effects of climate change.
Forging a sustainable future demands an appreciation of what’s at stake and how to protect it.
Never before in history has the future of our environment faced a more pressing issue than it is today. This generation of students will feel the effects of climate change more than any other and it is critical that every student is provided with an opportunity to study and understand the climate crisis through the school curriculum.
Climate change education is key to turn the tide on this crisis and to create a safe, sustainable world for generations to come. Remember that no step is too small and that the best way to promote change and encourage others to join the fight of our lives is by taking action and leading by example.

The course fee for our 2022 courses has been adjusted to meet the new KA1 grant budget (Erasmus+ Programme 2021-2027). Before, sending organisations received 70€/day/person for course fees. Now, the new KA1 grant provides 80€/day/person.
