Climate Champions – Local Learning Communities

“ERASMUS+ KA220-ADU – Cooperation partnerships in adult education”

Climate change is the greatest challenge and opportunity of our times. Across the EU, communities are vulnerable to climate change and Europe’s biodiversity continues to be eroded. Recent data shows that 60% of species and 77% of habitat assessments show persistent habitat loss, diffuse pollution, over-exploitation of resources, growing impact of invasive species and climate change contributing cumulatively. Never has building community resilience, improving sustainable lifestyles and business practices been such a high priority.

Climate Champions – Local Learning Communities provides a whole of community actionable/educational contributions to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and 6 of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

SDG3 Good Health and Wellbeing

SDG4 Quality Education

SDG12 Responsible consumption and production

SDG13 Climate Action SDG11 Sustainable Cities and Communities

SDG15 Life on land

The objectives of the project are: 1) Empower and equip members of the local community and voluntary groups with skills and knowledge to become empowered climate action and biodiversity changemakers in their communities. 2) Inspire community groups to replicate and improve on best practice biodiversity and climate action community initiatives from Europe through a unique compendium of transferrable community best practice 3) Provide a replicable model of community training which will lead to the climate proofing of communities and a multitude of biodiversity action plans realized at a community development level 4) Increase the recognition of the role of non-formal (adult) education in achieving biodiversity and climate action change in the EU.
