Introduction
I am a not-very-young, but full of energy and passion, environmental education researcher, experienced also in out-of-university jobs. I work for the Faculty of Educational Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland. I focus on climate change education, curriculum studies, and policy in this field, but occasionally, cooperate in related areas of sustainability, outdoor pedagogy, and primary science. My additional field of interest is gender equality in education and society.

Question (1)
Question
Climate change is one of the most serious challenges humanity has ever faced. To address the problem UN Framework Climate Change Convention was established Climate change education has been a legal obligation of 197 UN climate change convention’s parties for more than 30 years, but in the 2021 UNESCO revision of national curricula from 100 UN countries, nearly 47% of them had no reference to climate change or treated the topic marginally (Getting Every School Climate-Ready: How Countries Are Integrating Climate Change Issues in Education - UNESCO Digital Library, n.d.). Moreover, the UNFCCC reports to IPCC on the countries' progress in the Convention's commitments, usually lacked data appropriate for monitoring climate change education (McKenzie 2021).
The question is why formal education is not used (or: is used rarely) as a tool in efforts to mitigate CC effects?
