Talking to children about complex issues, like sustainability, can be daunting. Many young people are becoming exposed to climate change and its impacts through social media and conversations around them, making it an important discussion for families to have to help kids understand and address future challenges.
Sustainability is about building a better world for all, ensuring resources last for future generations, and promoting positive environmental and social impact focused on eliminating poverty, reducing inequalities and fighting climate change.

Through action-based and collaborative learning, they discover kids have the power to make a big impact – no matter their age”
