A global community of support.

It has been life-changing for many of my students and their families.
I found that absolutely thrilling.

Climate change is real. All around the world where the patterns are changing and affecting people, animals and the environment. To tackle this growing crisis we have to take action. We have to change mindsets.

We need youth’s creativity to repair our planet. We need students to invent and to innovate – to think beyond where we are now and to be optimist about our future.

Young people are on the frontline in the fight against climate change and will bear the greatest consequences of inaction. But, through changes to their own lifestyles and activist movements, they are also playing an important and growing role in pushing government and business leaders for a better response.

Schools and colleges can act as ‘levellers’ to enable all young people to have a minimum level of nature experience, when the opportunities and encouragement they get at home may differ enormously.

It was an amazing experience for the teacher and the students. The participation in this global community made us feel empowered and we appreciated the small yet essential changes in our everyday life we can all do to protect our planet.

I love to participate and that the students perceive that many young people just like them participate in the same actions and also have the intention that caring for the planet is a reality.

We’re really looking forward to understanding what state will be the second state to work together with New Jersey because we can’t do it on our own.

Our Climate Action Schools provide something for everyone. It allows our students to be involved in a front-and-center issue and have meaningful interaction and dialogue and be part of it, no matter what their ability level is.

At the end of the day, the greatest single impact on student outcomes is teachers.
