How do we get kids to think about climate change and its affects on the future environment? The Atlantic Rising project, created by three British explorers, is one approach that helps children living in low coastal areas see a glimpse into their future. With caution tape and some measurements from local surveyors, children in Scotland, Ghana, Guyana and Nantucket have measured out the projected one-meter sea level rise in the next hundred years due to climate change in a simple, and non-frightening way. Could creating similar projects with such approaches to teaching climate change work nationally and globally?
Climate change is a major issue and concern as of today. One of the key aspects of climate change is climate change education. Therefore, students who are in higher education could be key factors in slowing down climate change. Students could be lead advocates for climate change reform
