2020 has definitely thrown a spanner in the works for holidays and kids summer camps, so we decided to run our own! Children will learn about climate change, plastic pollution, fast fashion, food, energy, biodiversity and how to care for the natural environment. We’ll also explore some small changes we can make that have huge, positive impacts on our planet.
We'll have fun quizzes and challenges for everyone to get involved.
After the session is over you can continue the fun on our Padlet of climate change activities, related to the topic of the day.
