To accelerate climate action, start with mandating climate education in schools

Mandate climate education in schools alongside a decarbonisation task force to accelerate climate action in Malaysia.

While countries such as India, Philippines, China, Japan, and Brazil have had environmental education formally mandated in their national curricula for years, in Asia, we need to see more grass roots efforts to raise awareness among schools. Malaysia is reaching a tipping point for decarbonisation, and the momentum is only growing with businesses coming to the forefront for definitive action. CEO Action Network  (CAN) is one of the recent informal coalitions of CEOs of leading businesses in Malaysia, committed to the decarbonisation agenda and in support of climate awareness and education efforts.

Join the series of round tables to discuss ways to increase national climate ambition.

Businesses are under unprecedented pressure from investors, regulators, financiers, customers, and employees to demonstrate their climate resilience against a backdrop of a warming world and to articulate their climate ambition. There is therefore an urgent need for an alignment of government policy between economic, climate and energy priorities, against a backdrop of socio-economic wellbeing of citizens.
