Melanie Harwood is an Education Specialist and a Philanthropist who is passionate about developing innovative education packages to close the attainment gap and aims to deliver not only the deeper cognitive thinkers but the sustainability leaders that our countries now need to achieve Carbon Neutral.
The 2019, eduCCate Global Certified Climate Change Teacher Training is just one example of how and what she creates and curates in order to empower schools to develop a cross-curricular climate curriculum. Putting these intentions into action, after the launch, at COP 24 in Katowice Poland 2018, of her concept to deliver the eduCCate Global Climate Change Teacher Course to all schoolteachers, Melanie personally funded more than 329,000 educators, in 43 Countries. These educators were the very first eduCCate Global Certified Climate Change Teachers, in the World!
She personally sponsored several schools to participate in and complete the eduCCate Global Bronze and Silver Awards, in both the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates.
Melanie funded two Headteachers and team members to attend COP 25 Madrid in 2019.
Melanie Harwood delivered initiatives with the United Nations (UNITAR) and Hammersmith & Fulham Borough Council when the United Kingdom entered its first Covid 19 Lockdown and created both the Recovery Curriculum Virtual Summit as well as the Sustainable Schools Virtual Summit, which were made available to all school leaders.
Melanie recently sponsored a group of teachers to take part in the launch delivery of the eduCCate Global Certified Carbon Literacy Specialist Teacher Training and she hopes that this will pave the way for the very first eduCCate Global Gold Award School in the Middle East to lead all schools in the region. She says, “We must all take note of those schools that are genuine leaders in Sustainability and Carbon Literacy, as they will be the change-makers in education throughout the world”.
