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
in primary schools.
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. They have a go at measuring their carbon footprints, as well as those of their teachers and families. We also give them fun, simple, practical ideas to help their family reduce their footprint.
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.

We want to send 25 volunteers into 25 schools in the summer term 2022.
On average the programme reaches 30 students each time. That’s 750 students, plus their families.
If each of these families is inspired to drop just one tonne from their annual carbon footprint, that’s 750 tonnes!
Questions we'll 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?
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.
