With the charity Climate Ed's carbon literacy programme, students, teachers and volunteers have a tool to tackle climate change challenges.
"I enjoyed it because it inspired me to do more things to help climate change. It was all amazing," says a student participating.
Chris, a scientist at Imperial College London said: "I was able to see another side to myself that I don’t get to utilise in my everyday job - so I learned a lot too."
Ben Cuddon, founder of Climate Ed and director at Surefoot, says that young people are keen to learn and take action, but also points to a poll stating that 75% of UK teachers feel unprepared to teach about climate change.
Climate Ed is stepping in to fill the gap, providing schools with a pre-packaged programme, delivered by trained volunteers, covering all the basics about climate science and, most importantly, how children and their families can take action by reducing their carbon emissions.
Over time, Climate Ed aims to roll the programme out to primary and secondary schools throughout London and across the UK. They are interested in hearing from schools, councils and people interested in being volunteers. Please get in touch with Climate Ed if you would like to know more.
