“If nothing changes, how long have we got?” Responding to children’s questions on climate change through Curious Climate Schools
Many children are suffering increasing anxiety as they encounter the climate crisis, fearing the planet is doomed, and that they have been betrayed by adults. Climate change will impact the health, wealth, life choices and career trajectories of today’s children across their whole lives. In the absence of a democratic right to vote, asking questions is one avenue through which children can be involved in climate discourse and decision-making. In this webinar, the Curious Climate Schools team describe a two year climate literacy intervention involving 50 classes and more than 1000 children aged 10-18 from Tasmania, Australia. We explore what we can learn from their questions, and how our 80 experts have responded and connected with students. We reflect on the challenges for teachers introducing climate change into the classroom, and the urgent need for holistic and sensitive climate education in schools.
