Created by the Eden Project, and compiled by the Global Dimension, these three resources are designed to help teachers develop their pupils’ understanding of what Climate Change is, why it is happening and, most importantly, how they can act in response to it. Their lesson plans are aligned with UK’s National Curriculum whilst also offering solutions that empower learners to take realistic action both at school and in their own lives. 

Video: Explaining Climate Change

What is climate change? What is the greenhouse effect? Big questions, with surprisingly simple answers. Watch this snappy six-minute video taking you around the planet and back again with a clear, accessible explanation of climate change.

Curriculum Plan: How will we rise to the challenge of climate change?

This inquiry of learning is a response to the climate emergency. Learning from the indigenous knowledge of the Inuit, young climate champions around the world and organisations like the Eden Project, pupils will discover that every one of us has a part to play as we work together for the well-being of our planet.

Lesson plan: Climate Response – Doers, Shoppers, Learners, Shouters

The purpose of this lesson is to support young people to be able to respond confidently to the climate emergency and in a way that makes sense to them. We share our thinking about the ways in which everyone can choose to respond to the current situation – whether they see themselves as Doers, Shoppers, Learners, Shouters or all of the above.
