The sixth Global Environment Outlook (GEO-6), UNEP’s flagship integrated environmental assessment, launched in 2019, stresses that the scale of the environmental challenges we face requires true transformational change in how we produce and consume energy and food as well as how we manage waste, rather than simply incremental policies and business as usual. The Technical Summary of GEO-6 distils the science and data in the main report and synthesizes the information to make it more accessible to students and scientists, making it more useful both for teaching and learning at the university level.
 
On 3 December 5:00-6:30 pm EAT, the Technical Summary will be presented in a webinar that will focus on how to use GEO-6 and the Technical Summary as a teaching tool at university level. Panellists will include university professors who have participated in the GEO process and use GEO as a teaching tool, to discuss their experience and provide advice and lesson learned for university students and lecturers.
