5 ways education can save the planet

April 22 is Earth Day

This is just one simple, straightforward connection between education and our planet.

The Sustainable Development Agenda is holistic, based on the principle that real progress towards one of the 17 goals depends upon progress in the others.

So to celebrate Earth Day, we are highlighting 5 ways education can help save the planet.
