In a step intended to inform people about the Climate Changes issue and enhance climate change education in Egypt as well, the Department of Environmental Information and Awareness conducted a number of awareness seminars entitled “Climate Changes and Global Warming and Their Impact on Humans And the environment” at different schools and cultural houses in a number of Delta governorates.

According to a statement released by the Ministry of Environment, the seminars and awareness campaigns come in light of Egypt’s national strategy to raise public awareness of the climate change crisis ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference 2022 (COP27).

The Egyptian government holds a number of fruitful symposiums on reducing carbon dioxide emissions and supporting capacity-building and sustainable development, the statement said.

In the same connection, it affirmed the need for wider participation in the climate change education operations to collectively address the climate change issue and its consequences.

The seminars were given at the headquarters of Quesna Culture House in Menoufia Governorate, at Shafiq Ainer School in the village of Mit Al-Nour, Zefta Center in Gharbia Governorate, Umm Al-Momineen Secondary School in Tanta in Gharbia Governorate, and the Martyr Magdy Mahmoud Al-Qashash School, and Quesna Secondary School for Girls, the Ministry said.

The seminars highlighted the definition of global warming and greenhouse gases and their impacts on the planet, and a brief overview of the environmental changes caused by pollution worldwide.

The awareness seminars aim to bring together the climate experts, think tanks, and members of Egypt’s civilian society to discuss the impact of climate change and immigration on society and the mechanism of combating these global crises as well.
