World Education Statement on Climate Change

May 18th, 2022 | News

At World Education, our mission is to improve people’s lives through education and economic development. We work with people across the globe to ensure that all individuals have the skills to change their lives, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, or circumstances. We do this by taking an equity-centered, community-focused approach to working in education and civil society systems. We recognize that our work requires that we confront the consequences of climate change, environmental degradation, and biodiversity loss. We understand that improved education and development cannot be achieved and sustained unless we simultaneously commit to supporting community-led adaptation and mitigating the consequences of climate and environment change.

Our parent company, JSI Research & Training Institute, is a signatory to InterAction’s NGO Climate Compact. This multifaceted agreement requires us to be accountable as we engage in advocacy and education efforts, address the multi-dimensional drivers of climate and environment change, examine and change our internal operations, and learn from others. 

World Education also considers environmental impact when designing and siting new facilities. For example, World Education’s office in Boston is Energy Star Certified.
