Abstract

Climate change is perceived as one of the major challenges of modern times. But in order to help people to comprehend the various messages around climate change, it is important to foster climate change education. This paper reviews the state of the art on climate change education at university level, and examines the problems associated with it. Its novelty is based on the fact that it presents the results of an international analysis, which illustrates different understandings and engagements of a variety of universities with climate change across diverse audiences and geographical conditions. The paper concludes by outlining some of the lessons learned and some areas where interventions are needed.
