What is the Climate Education Summer University ? 

The Climate Education Summer University (CESU) is an education initiative organized as part of the European project ESM2025, aiming at providing in-service teachers with a full week of professional development workshops on climate change. The event will be held by the Office for Climate Education (OCE) which is a center under the auspices of UNESCO, and Météo France.
