THE ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING UNIT (EETU)

The Environmental Education and Training Unit (EETU) undertakes Environmental Education and Training in close collaboration with all UNEP ’s Divisions. The programmes, projects, initiatives and activities of EETU are organized around three pillars namely Education, Training and Networking with specific focus on Higher Education.

They are broadly guided by UNEP’s seven priority thematic areas namely Climate Change; Ecosystems Management; Disasters and Conflicts; Environmental Governance; Harmful Substances; Resource Efficiency; and Environment under Review.

EETU supports and strengthens implementation of UNEP’s seven cross-cutting thematic priorities by harnessing the potential of universities as vehicles of change and transformation within communities.

This is accomplished through educating, training and creating awareness within universities and across governments, training centres, non-governmental organizations’ and the private sector.
