UN Sustainable Development Goals - Goal 13: Climate Action

Sustainable Development Goals – Climate Action

‘By addressing climate change, we can build a sustainable world for everyone.’ – UN

TME has lessons on planting trees and making compost, which encourage communities to make responsible climate choices.
We are exploring partnerships with other organisations working towards this goal, including developing a new lesson to encourage responsible behaviour towards the oceans and coastline.
Below are a number of our DVDs which relate directly to championing climate action.
