IEMA | Martin Baxter CEnv Comments on Draft DfE Strategy

Putting climate change and sustainability at the heart of education is key to net-zero transition and nature recovery.

IEMA welcomes proposals from the Department for Education to embed climate change and sustainability throughout education and life-long learning.

IEMA’s Director of Policy and External Affairs, Martin Baxter CEnv, commenting on draft DfE strategy, said:

“Achieving a net-zero future and hitting our long-term environmental goals means we need to equip tomorrow’s workforce with the skills and capability to play their part in the Green Industrial Revolution.

We welcome the Department for Education’s wide-ranging and ambitious draft strategy as a vital missing-piece that will help equip people with the skills and competences needed to transition to a sustainable economy. Our outreach work with young people this summer showed that students need pathways and signposts to help them achieve a sustainable future. The draft strategy is an important element towards them developing the ability to achieving their potential.”

IEMA will engage with members, employers and those in education and training to help inform the next stages of the strategy.
