OUR STORY

We founded the Istanbul Climate Academy in the run up to COP 26*, November 2021. The official theme of COP26: “Uniting the World to Tackle Climate Change” has been inspirational as it is in the spirit of the vision envisaged the

Climate Change Academy.

We both have two decades of solid experience across the private, public, academic and civil society sectors on climate change and sustainability. They both have over twenty years of experience in international organizations including the World Bank, the United Nations (UNDP, UNEP, UNOPS, GEF) and the Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe where they worked in strategy development, policy making, finance and capacity building in different areas of sustainable development. Attain enable transformation towards a sustainable future. 

We want to be a part of the design,
the transformation to create our own future
to attain a resilient and sustainable future.

VISION

We imagine a world in which our children live in well adapted, resilient societies that transformed to zero-carbon economies. We strive to live in societies where the impacts of climate change are well understood, discussed, strategized and acted upon to enable this transformation. We image societies of the Black Sea, the Medittarean, Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), the Balkans, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) are committed to sustainability with adequate knowledge and skills needed to transition to a zero carbon economy.

 

MISSION

The Climate Academy creates a learning and sharing environment for all concerned about the climate crisis and who recognize the urgent need to act for a sustainable future.

The learning environment aims to equip participants with a holistic understanding of mitigation and adaptation to climate change in order to enable real change within different settings.

The theme of COP26 is close to our heart: Uniting the World to Tackle Climate Change
