Webinar: Adaptation to climate change: sustainable lifestyles and the role of non-formal education

How are the themes of sustainable lifestyles and climate change related to each other?

How can non-formal education initiatives be integrated into projects and National Adaptation Plans?

What examples of success exist in Latin America and the Caribbean?

UN Environment invites you to participate in the following Webinar of the NAPS Community, which will seek to emphasize the central role that sustainable lifestyles and non-formal education play in determining the capacity to adapt to climate change. In this respect, the aim will be to demonstrate that sustainable lifestyles and non-formal education are key to the transformation towards a society that is prepared, informed and resilient to climate risks. The webinar will present experiences and initiatives promoted by the Ministry of Education in Chile and the Universidad del Bosque de Colombia.
