Kids & climate change
A report from Leeds City Council says that children in schools need to be taught about climate change in a way that will “galvanise” them into making a difference.
The document, entitled the Climate Action Route Map, lists 10 ways that children can be better taught the importance of these issues.
It reads: “The debate over the causes of climate change has a long and turbulent history which continues to this day.

“Overwhelmingly, however, the scientific community acknowledges the impact of human activity on the environment and evidence is clear that, unless the world takes urgent action to limit carbon emissions within this decade, average global temperatures will rise above 1.5ºC with catastrophic consequences.

“Increasingly professionals report a surge in ‘eco-anxiety’; a concern or worry about ecological disasters and the advertised risk to the natural environment.”
