How to Defend Child Rights Affected by Climate Change

This education pack is a teacher’s and/or (peer) facilitator’s guide for in-school and extracurricular exploration and action activities in industrialized countries on the issue of climate change and its impact on child rights.

01 January 2011

The goal of this toolkit is to help children and young people understand the links between climate change and child rights and make them realize that they can fight climate change, empowering them to become ‘actors of change’.

Moreover, the skills that students will learn through exploring these activities will serve them in good stead for the rest of their lives, as they will sense that they are able to affect change.
