FLAME University & International Union of Biological Sciences Make Climate Change Education Universally Accessible


FLAME University & International Union of Biological Sciences Make Climate Change Education Universally Accessible


In a world grappling with the devastating impacts of climate change, FLAME University is stepping up to lead the charge in climate education. The Centre for Sustainability, Environment, and Climate Change (CSECC) at FLAME University, in partnership with the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS), Paris, aims to make quality climate change education accessible to all through the Trans-disciplinary Research Oriented Pedagogy for Improving Climate Studies and Understanding (TROP ICSU) project.

The TROP ICSU project, an ambitious initiative by IUBS, aims to integrate critical climate change resources into the global education system, empowering future generations with the knowledge and skills necessary to address this urgent global issue. This strategic collaboration enhances FLAME’s leadership in environmental education, aiming to equip students and educators worldwide with comprehensive climate literacy.

The partnership comes at a crucial time, as the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP-2020) emphasizes environmental education as a key component of the curriculum. The free-to-use TROP ICSU platform facilitates the creation of a global network of environmentally conscious educators by offering:

  • Over 800 scientifically vetted resources for teachers and students from around the world.
  • A repository of 370+ lesson plans and 530+ teaching tools across 10 disciplines: Humanities, Chemistry, Geography, Social Sciences, Biological Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Earth Sciences, Economics, Mathematics, and Statistics.

These resources are designed with culturally appropriate pedagogy, ensuring accessibility and relevance for educators globally, fostering climate awareness through a locally rooted yet globally pertinent approach.

FLAME University’s CSECC has conducted numerous TROP ICSU workshops, reaching a wide audience and promoting environmental awareness and education through these comprehensive resources.

Prof. Dishan Kamdar, Vice-Chancellor of FLAME University, remarked, “With NEP-2020 integrating environmental education, this partnership further encourages environmental awareness and sustainable development. We are proud to partner with IUBS for TROP ICSU, as FLAME University aims to advance this initiative through its Centre for Sustainability, Environment, and Climate Change. Our campus is committed to sustainability through our infrastructure and research projects focused on environmental issues.”

Dr. Rahul Chopra, Director of the Centre for Sustainability, Environment, and Climate Change at FLAME University and Director of Project TROP ICSU,  added, “Our partnership with IUBS for the TROP ICSU project marks a significant milestone in our mission to promote climate awareness and sustainability through education. By providing educators with high-quality, free, ready-to-use resources, we empower them to teach the next generation about the critical issue of climate change.”

As FLAME University and IUBS join forces for the TROP ICSU project, their primary objective is to educate teachers and students about the importance of preserving the planet. This remarkable partnership is dedicated to making the world a greener, better place.

Established in 1919, the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS) has been a catalyst for international collaboration and scientific progress in biology. For over 105 years, IUBS has facilitated partnerships between scientists, institutions, and organizations worldwide, with a presence within United Nations organizations, the International Science Council, international scientific societies, national focal points, and ad hoc networks.
