Climate change is a global problem that has already had a big impact on our planet. It is important for children to understand climate change and what they can do to help. Encourage your child to explore nature and the environment around him. This can be done by taking family nature walks or through science museums to learn more about the environment. Asking children about the world around them will encourage them to observe things and ask their own questions. Answer their questions about climate change and the environment honestly, but don’t scare them off. Talk to them about how we’ve helped solve the problem so far, like how the hole in the ozone layer is closing. Lead by example and do your best to be respectful of the environment. A good place to start is to cut out single-use plastic. Try to make lasting activities fun for the kids. You can make a compost bin or plant bee-friendly flowers. Another fun, long-lasting activity kids would love to make art from recyclable materials
