Climate Tuesday, 19th April

1. It’s Earth Day this Friday, 22nd April, and the Climate Action in Language Education team are celebrating with a special event at 11:00 UK time, “to launch a new research publication, ‘Climate action across the global English language teaching (ELT) sector’, as well as a range of new high- and low-tech free resources for English teachers looking for innovative ways to integrate climate change issues into the classroom”.

3. Here’s an OECD ‘snapshot’ of Climate-Related Official Development Assistance (ODA)

One finding is that there’s been scant increase in the proportion of ODA devoted to climate change mitigation or adaptation since 2013. PDF below as well.
