After writing my article about the importance of teaching about Climate Change in schools, I have now started a petition to parliament. With COP26 currently going ahead, it seems vital that everyone is talking about the environment and pushing to make changes. If we can stoke up a debate in parliament to encourage basic environmental education in all schools, then we will surely be moving in the right direction.
My recommendation is for Environmental Education to be compulsory in all schools. I also think that it should be a distinct subject rather than covered in dribs and drabs under the guise of Science and Geography. If it is given a highlight as a subject of its own, young people will recognise how important and impactful this matter is.
I would really appreciate it if anyone can help to get the ball rolling by signing the parliamentary petition below.
Thank you for taking time to consider this. I feel so passionately about young people being fully educated in the scope and scale of this international problem. For a related post about climate change, click here.
