The Big Conversation

How to talk to children about the climate crisis – at home and in schools

Re-watch this webinar on WeDonthaveTime.org

As parents, caregivers and teachers, we all want what's best for our children. But it can be hard to know how to talk to them about climate change and the future.

Climate anxiety in young people is rising, many are worried about what the climate crisis will mean for their future. As adults, we can play a key role – both in taking action ourselves – but also to help our children cope with the emotional impacts of a changing climate.

This webinar will bring together psychologists, teachers, authors and climate-parent activists to talk about how we can support our children through a changing climate. We will talk about psychology, activism and climate education as tools to help children manage the climate crisis and climate-related anxiety.

  • What role can schools play in arming our children with the right knowledge for the future?
