What is Environmental and Climate Literacy? Hear it from Mallika who’s seen it’s effects first hand in Antarctica
Being climate literate means understanding the essential principles of the Earth’s climate system, communicating about climate and climate change effectively and making informed and responsible decisions with regard to actions that may affect the climate.It was through my fellowship and interaction with my students that I understood the importance of climate change education. Children have a high ability to absorb information, they are able to spread information and not to forget – they are the leaders of tomorrow. It only makes sense to include them in the process of fighting against climate change and finding solutions.
