Education is a key part of the climate crisis solution

N ever has there been a more important time to promote the awareness and understanding of Climate Change than now. If children grow up informed and educated about the environmental issues, then they are more likely to support the solutions (and actions) needed to remedy them.

In our efforts to support environmental education (in school and at home), we’ve created some learning activity ideas, supported by appropriate images where possible to make them visual and engaging.

Where possible, we’ve tried to make the resources downloadable (and editable as Word files) – so you can use them more flexibly.

We’ve also bundled up some resources for your convenience (see right) .

We hope you find them useful.

Learning about Climate Change

| Blog, Learn
Climate change is the long-term shift in average weather patterns across the world. Humans have contributed to the release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air through a range of practices, including burning fossil fuels, driving vehicles or industry. Scientists believe that this is contributing to increased global temperatures and long-term changes to climate. We have detailed a range of sources of information to support teachers and to support children with their own research and then we have directed to teaching and learning resources that can be used in the classroom, or for home learning.
