CCL supports an economy-wide carbon tax, where the money is given to people, typically referred to as a carbon fee and dividend or carbon tax and dividend. With a carbon tax, a fee is applied wherever fossil fuels enter the economy. This price flows through the economy, incentivizing businesses and people to switch to clean energy.
This campaign combines grassroots support and on the ground efforts by students, educators, and nonprofits with national level commitments from Ministries of Education and Environment. The Climate and Environmental Literacy Campaign ensures that students across the world benefit from high-quality education to develop into informed and engaged environmental stewards.
