Climate change is widely recognised as the most critical challenge of our time

However, the many effects of climate change are felt most strongly in the poorest communities of the world. To avoid devasting impacts, the world needs urgent action in the next decades, with radical shifts by 2050 (IPCC 2018).  

Higher education has a crucial role to play in responding to the climate crisis, not only through carrying out research, but also through teaching, community engagement and public awareness. This project aims to strengthen the contribution of universities to addressing the causes and impacts of climate change in lower-income contexts. It focuses on four countries: Brazil, Fiji, Kenya and Mozambique.  In doing so, it contributes to the broader task of understanding the role of education in achieving the full set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

What are the effects of locally-generated university initiatives on actions and ideas relating to climate change in Brazil, Fiji, Kenya and Mozambique?

How do they inform our understandings of the role of higher education in sustainable development?
