We believe in activating children and youth, through education, to find comprehensive solutions to climate change. The Climate Action Camp is a space where students develop innovative initiatives for their local climate challenges, with the support of mentors and innovative methodological tools. These transformative educational experiences empower participants between the ages of 12 and 18 to understand the global climate reality, while generating ideas for a more sustainable future. The Camp is implemented through the creation of diverse groups, including local politicians and entrepreneurs, who provide information and accompaniment.
Some of the challenges selected for the Camp are waste reduction, clean energy, sustainable mobility, as well as reducing inequality, improving access to quality health care, eliminating hunger and more.
The Climate Action Academy is a virtual training program on climate change and green solutions for educators teaching students in grades 7-12. The goal of this program is to prepare teachers to address these issues in the classroom in an interdisciplinary and action-oriented manner.
The month-long online training provides facts, stories and perspectives on the climate crisis; motivates teachers to take action for a sustainable future; and shares educational tools for innovation.
Resources such as visual and didactic tools, which address systems and design thinking, storytelling, creativity and teamwork, are offered. In addition, participants are mentored to design lesson plans, activities and institutional programs to address emerging educational and environmental challenges.
Those who complete the process join an international network of climate change agents and earn a Climate-KIC certificate.
The Academy provides complementary guides for educators to help them integrate climate innovation and action into their curricula, regardless of subject matter.

In response to the need for educational institutions and businesses to reinvent themselves to prepare future generations to adapt to and solve the challenges of the 21st century, Climate Action Labs consist of methodologies, tools, networks and interdisciplinary decision-making perspectives to address the climate and social crises that lie ahead. In addition, they support the transformation and regeneration of educational institutions and the incubation of climate labs or academies within them.
Through this process, it is possible to identify specialized methods for continuous improvement and regeneration in relation to climate change within organizations. These methods vary according to the need and resources of the beneficiary/client, but Climate Action Labs often specialize in a particular area, such as water management or food waste.
