This guide from UNICEF Canada has been created to support upper secondary school educators in their efforts to work with young people to take action on climate change. Through thought-provoking activities, students have the opportunity to nurture their compassion and discover how climate change is affecting children around the world, especially children in developing countries.

This guide contains a series of activities with accompanying handouts connected to the six themes of: natural disasters, food security, health, natural environments, water and energy, and how climate change impacts on these themes. Each theme includes the following sections:

  • Interactive and thought provoking student activities to accompany the theme
  • Informative facts and statistics providing background for the educator and/or student to facilitate the theme
  • Easy to understand student handouts accompanying each activity
  • Inspirational profiles and student projects challenging youth to make the change.
