The Green Learning Network (GLN) is a dedicated space where education and training professionals from around the world can find a range of green learning resources and events, share information, ask advice, and learn from one another. Launched by the Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) with support from the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE), the GLN aims to inform, inspire, and innovate while facilitating partnerships and collaboration around green learning. This online collaborative space showcases a wide range of green learning opportunities and events for students and provides an exchange space for demand-driven collaboration on green learning among practitioners.
UNEP’s Youth and Education Alliance (YEA!) works with both higher education and youth networks from around the world to increase environmental awareness and education to accelerate the environmental changes that urgently need to be made in this decade. The goal is to inspire higher education institutions across the globe to integrate sustainability and environmental best practices into their curricula, civics and across their campuses while also raising the profile of higher education as change agents. Greening the Campus is an online series of convenings about these topics and part of UNEP’s focus on growing green jobs for youth.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is an intergovernmental organisation that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future. IRENA promotes the widespread adoption and sustainable use of all forms of renewable energy in the pursuit of sustainable development, energy access, energy security and low-carbon economic growth and prosperity. With more than 180 states actively engaged, IRENA encourages governments to adopt enabling policies for renewable energy investments, provides practical tools and policy advice to accelerate renewable energy deployment, and facilitates knowledge sharing and technology transfer to provide clean, sustainable energy for the world’s growing population.
