This week’s feature looks at the global climate change action that took place on the 21 September, the International Day of Peace.
Students will discover what the aim of the International Day of Peace is, how climate change affects peace, what the UN is doing about climate change and how young people can get involved.
This PDF resource includes this article, as well as accompanying activity ideas:
- Debate the ethics of the recent schools strike led by Greta Thunberg. Is any issue important enough for children to miss out on education, or is this sort of protest better left to adults? Or are children, the future of this world, the best people to protest its destruction?
- Put together a five-point plan to get world leaders to do something about climate change
- Create clever protest signs by writing three slogans to go on them
- Research a recent extreme weather occurrence that forced people to leave their homes and write a summary of the events
