Robert Cobbold, Founder of ConsciousEvolution:

The Carbon Literacy Teachers Awards was a hugely exciting event which kickstarts the next phase of eduCCate Global's mission to change climate change education worldwide.

It was so nice to see such energy and enthusiasm from students, teachers, university professors and business leaders alike. There is a clear sense of shared purpose and identity, the pathway forward is illuminated and I am delighted to be a part of it.

Connor Davey, University Student (NTU) Carbon Literacy Teacher Training Facilitator:

"My experience with the team at eduCCate Global has surpassed my expectations. I have learnt so much about the importance of carbon education and got the chance to facilitate that learning for teachers. I am now motivated to pursue sustainability as part of my career and make a real difference!"

Dr Julian Ng, Vice President, Warnborough College, Ireland:

It was an honour to be present at the Carbon Literacy Teachers Awards ceremony to celebrate the teachers who will be making impactful changes to their students’ lives through climate change education.

It’s amazing how EduCCate Global has brought together this incredible movement of leaders of all ages whose actions are already making huge change globally and all at Wild Planet Explorers are excited for what’s next!”

Franziska Elmer, Climate Scientist and Sargassum Specialist:

I was honoured to join the awards ceremony after having been partnering with eduCCate Global for just a few weeks. Learning about how eduCCate Global was started and how far it came was beyond inspiring. The fierce determination of Melanie Harwood to make this not just a small project is what made it so large and successful already. And this attracted many others that are as determined as her and together they are unstoppable.

Anthea Fenton, Founder of the Empower In An Hour and Write Your Climate Story Eco-Anxiety Recovery Programme:

Truly honoured to have been invited by EduCCate Global to witness the pioneers, back from the future, grow their wings in achieving the first ever Climate Change Teachers awards. What a Ceremony of achievement and vision. Melanie Harwood is paying forward towards the reset of our world and sustainability through connection, networking and partnership. Together we are better. Today I grew my wings. Anthea Fenton - empowering angel.

Alan Green, Recycling and Waste Management Schools Sustainability Co-Ordinator:

I sensed I was present at a significant event in terms of climate change action. The EduCCate Global training programme presented certificates to the first cohort of Teachers and University students involved in delivering or facilitating carbon literacy skills in schools. Blue Castle are proud to partner this project and support schools and communities in reducing their carbon footprint.

Lisa Pugh, Deer Wood Sustainability, Learn & Thrive:

It was wonderful to be a part of this special awards the ceremony today to see the amazing range of people who have worked so hard to achieve a huge step for climate change teaching.

Thank you to Melanie for having such a powerful vision and the non-stop indomitability to take action on the climate emergency through mass education.

I am so happy to be a part of the team at eduCCate Global and know that by working together with so many like-minded people from such a rich and diverse array of specialisms, that the results of this collaboration will be a turning point in the history of the education system.

A huge congratulation goes out to all that have become the very first Carbon Literacy Teachers and I look forward to the next chapter of this fast-evolving journey to global Climate Literacy.

I have no doubts that this programme has the power to change schools, people and the planet faster than the world has ever seen before. My passion was matched by the passion of the teachers and it showed me that if we continue together with such enthusiasm to educate one another, there is no reason why we can’t make a permanent change!”
