According to Michelle Nijhuis in The Atlantic, a lot of climate-change education materials for children “focus on how to explain climate change” but rarely focus on “when and why teachers ought to discuss climate change in class”…
In this presentation Heidi Edmonds will talk about age appropriate engagement on environmental and climate issues for kids.
As part of this, she will also touch on how to fact-check climate news, ways to protect mental health in a changing climate, and some of her climate heroes.
Dr Heidi Edmonds is an ecologist and environmental engineer with a PhD in freshwater ecology and experience in science communication.
As a mother of young children, and an advocate for protecting our climate, she is passionate about making climate science and climate action accessible, simple and easy to understand.
