Global Climate Change Strikes

Find resources on the global climate strike to share with your students

Climate change is a global concern, affecting every living creature on this planet, and it is an issue that has once again been brought to the forefront of the world stage by Greta Thunberg, a Swedish school student. The planned worldwide Global Climate Strikes in September on Friday 20th and Friday 27th, in addition to the emergency UN summit beginning on the 23rd, are a mark of how desperate the current situation is.

Help your students understand the causes and consequences of climate change on the world in which they live and teach them ways to support the worldwide climate change movement using this fantastic collection of resources including full lessons, worksheets and activities made by teachers for teachers.
