APAIE is a Signatory to the CANIE Accord

APAIE has recently become a Signatory to the CANIE Accord, a public commitment to climate action that was developed in consultation with leaders from international education peak bodies, associations, higher education institutions, university networks, media, national governments, corporations, supranational bodies, scholarship bodies, and more.

The CANIE Accord, and accompanying Glasgow Paper, represent the international education sector’s climate ambitions and commitment to align with scientific recommendations and global climate agreements.  By becoming a Signatory to the CANIE Accord, APAIE is strengthening and accelerating the international education sector’s collective response to the climate crisis.
