Your school can help tackle climate change
Climate Ed is a charity offering free education to children about climate change and carbon literacy
We offer free climate workshops to primary schools in London.
Our workshop programme looks at climate change in depth. It consists of five one-hour workshops, suitable for Year 5 or 6. It doesn't matter if your students are new to climate change or not; we guide them through the key things they need to know.
In the programme students learn about climate science in detail, then they learn about carbon literacy. It's delivered by volunteers who are passionate about the subject and often have specific expertise through their work. They aim to inspire young people to take an interest in climate change and begin taking action on it.
Ofsted were intrigued and impressed with the opportunities it gave children to deepen their understanding of the world. It gave the school a broader curriculum.

Ofsted were intrigued and impressed
We currently deliver our programme to about 50 cohorts of children per school term. On average the programme reaches 26 students each time. So that's c.1300 students per term, plus their families.
If each of these families is inspired to drop just one tonne from their annual carbon footprint, that’s over 1300 tonnes of CO2 saved from going into our atmosphere!
Here are some of the questions we answer and discuss
What is a carbon footprint and how can we measure it?
Which has a bigger impact on climate change, a banana or an ice cream?
Why is it so hot on the planet Venus?
And could London really go underwater?
As a resident of Wandsworth, Climate Ed offers me a fantastic opportunity to help empower the younger generations in my own community to be the positive catalysts for change and inspire them to pursue careers that could help unlock innovative scientific and social solutions to the climate crisis in the future.
