Student interest in climate, environmental and social justice has exploded in recent years. The global call to action for education to help mitigate the impact of the climate and environmental crisis has started to make headway. New national approaches to curriculum and schools' action are being discussed and, in some cases, implemented. How can we capitalise on this moment and empower teachers with the knowledge and tools to teach for sustainable futures and for students to work alongside the wider school's community to turn schools into shining green shining beacons in their communities. What would it take to make this happen and what can teachers and school leaders do to right now. This panel discussion brings together those working in education from the UN to students themselves to give real meaning to the word Sustainability.
