Empowering the next generation to take climate action
We’re proud to share that Anthesis has formed a new partnership with climate education charity Take Action Global.
Take Action Global (TAG) is a climate education charity with a global reach, pioneering solutions to empower students, teachers, and partners to take action on climate change. Head quartered in the United States and working with a global network of schools and organisations across seven continents, TAG’s mission is to inspire young people to become guardians of our planet through its education solutions.
This exciting collaboration is part of a company-wide, multi-year Corporate Responsibility initiative to focus our community, charity, and employee engagement activities around the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13: Climate Action. After a thorough selection process, TAG was the clear choice for our new charity partnership in terms of its mission and the charitable opportunities it offers our employees. We’re proud to share the same belief that education is one of the most effective tools to achieve transformation in our society and to deliver meaningful impact for our planet.
A community of over 2.5+ million students and teachers
TAG’s ambition is to empower 1 billion students to take action for a cleaner environment by 2030.
The charity’s work ranges from global education projects, learning experiences and curriculum development, to teacher training, virtual exchanges, and production of the annual Climate Action Day event.
Key education solutions include:
- Climate Action Schools:
The Climate Action Schools Programme is the charity’s flagship education project – a year-long learning experience for enabling students aged 5-18 to learn about environmental topics. Over the course of the project, classrooms explore the causes and effects of climate change, develop solutions, and take action as a school community.
