Open Edu.


Open Edu is a free and accessible climate education series that centers the voices and perspectives of People of the Global Majority.

Open Edu teaches on multiple topics through 3 major lenses—human rights, climate justice and collective liberation.

We believe that education is the foundation of progress, and that collectively we can cultivate the critical thinking to dismantle harmful systems.
