It explores the risks and opportunities presented by climate change and includes proposed actions to support the early childhood education sector to adapt to climate change impacts such as more very hot days and extended bushfire seasons.
The Victorian Government welcomes input from early years professionals regarding the role that the early childhood education sector plays in building an understanding of climate change, to help build personal resilience to impacts and provide a foundation for lifelong learning to prepare for this global challenge.

The Victorian Government is developing climate change adaptation action plans for systems that are either vulnerable to the impacts of climate change or essential to ensuring Victoria is prepared. Education and training is one of these systems. The education and training system is already impacted by extreme weather events, some of which are projected to increase in intensity or frequency as a result of climate change. As well as being vulnerable to climate change impacts, the education and training system is fundamental to building learners’ understanding of climate change and how it impacts them and their world.
