The My2050 Schools Toolkit: A guide for teachers wanting to engage students in the climate change debate
This toolkit is a set of activities that can be used in the classroom to engage students in debates about climate change and energy. Although some of this resource is focused on UK climate change policy and issues, there are several universal issues that apply wider than UK.
The target audience in schools is students between the ages of 11 – 16, but can be modified for use by younger or older groups.
