Book Details

Climate change is happening right here, right now. It is influencing human lives directly through impacts on health and the risk of extreme weather events on lives, livelihoods and human settlements. Indirectly, it impacts food security and the viability of natural resource-based economic activity. This book enables children to understand what climate change is, how we know it is happening, and what this might mean for the future. It also highlights the importance of behavioural changes which are required at individual level to decrease their carbon footprint and counter their impacts into our future. Further, the book encourages children using fun activities to research, investigate how and why things happen, and make their own decisions about environmental issues.
