Climate Ambassadors is led by EAUC and the University of Reading in partnership with STEM Learning and nine regional EAUC-member university and research institution partners with funding from Department for Education.  The goal is to support all nurseries, schools and colleges in England to implement climate action plans by 2025.

The Climate Ambassadors scheme mobilises and supports educational settings in England to act on climate change with the help of trained and supported volunteers.  Supported by free training and resources, Climate Ambassadors provide settings with free, tailored guidance to progress their  climate action plans across biodiversity, adaptation and resilience, decarbonisation, green careers and climate education.
