BCCIE invites our international education colleagues to join an informative webinar on the CANIE Accord (Climate Action Network for International Educators). This presentation will explore the requirements for becoming a signatory, and key benefits of signatory status. The presenters will also discuss other opportunities to engage with CANIE.


CANIE is a grassroots non-profit organization that is run entirely by volunteers in the international education sector who see the need for our sector to step up and act on climate. There are global working groups with specific goals (events, marketing, fundraising, content) and regional chapters. This event is in partnership with the CANIE Americas Chapter.
