The Clock Is Ticking

Our mission is to lead and support international educators around the world to take bold climate action by providing open access to information to raise the collective ambition of the sector.

Global warming is already impacting our lives; record temperatures and more frequent extreme weather events are being seen around the world and are particularly severe in many of the main source countries for international students. The 2018 IPCC Report suggested we now have 10 years left at most to act but there is a growing consensus that the next few years are critical.

Emissions have to be cut by 45% by 2030 to have any chance of keeping global warming within 1.5°C above pre-industrial baseline levels by the end of the century. The longer we delay action, the sharper the necessary emissions cuts will have to be.

We need to radically and immediately reverse course on emissions
to avert catastrophic climate change.
