Young People vs. Climate Change

While lots of Very Important Adults gather this week at COP26 to tackle climate change, young people in Aotearoa and all over the world are very concerned about the environment and our warming earth — and heaps are doing something about it!

From small things like reducing waste, planting gardens, or cutting back on the amount of electricity they use, kids are a key part of the solution. After all, it’s going to be THEIR planet soon!
