Contact us to receive our resources and become a Young Climate Warriors school!
All resources are designed to be
informative as well
Young Climate Warriors is a great way to carry on conversations begun in class at home
Each weekly topic and challenge provides information, engenders discussion, offers thought-provoking questions and suggests optional actions
Young Climate Warriors challenges are for children to undertake at home, so their parent/carer will need to be involved
Our award-winning Climate Change Club in a Box resources provide a comprehensive introduction to climate change, allowing pupils to delve down deeper.
(All ‘suggested challenges’ must be undertaken with the supervision and at the discretion of a responsible adult.)
SIGN UP here to register
your school and receive your
weekly Young Climate Warriors 'Schools Pack'.
Over 150 schools are now receiving our weekly 'schools pack', sharing the Young Climate Warriors initiative with their pupils.
Children can choose to be part of a big Young Climate Warriors team undertaking challenges to combat climate change.
If we all undertake the same actions in the same week, and then click the 'HIT THE RED BUTTON' on the website - Young Climate Warriors can make their voices heard, to count alongside their actions.
