August 19th is World Humanitarian Day, and this year’s theme is Climate Action – highlighting the immediate human cost of the climate crisis by pressuring world leaders to take meaningful climate action for the world’s most vulnerable people.
But how do we have these conversations with our children? How do we raise their awareness about the issue of climate change and help them be apart of the solution?
Take look at this fun and interactive learning tool put together by NASA: https://climatekids.nasa.gov. It covers some of the big questions, like:
- What is climate change?
- What is the greenhouse effect?
- Why is carbon important?
- How do we know the climate is changing?
- How does climate change affect the ocean?
The website goes on to share games, activities, videos, and features people committed in their work / careers to being a part of the solution. Check it out!
