Youth policies for England do not specifically mention global issues such as climate change, green production and consumption, human rights, international development and the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals, nor does the Government currently monitor young people's awareness of, and interest in, global issues.

However, global and environmental education is supported by a range of resources and programmes. For example, participation in schemes such as Eco-schools is high.
