Inspiring teachers and pupils to act on climate change.
Welcome to WWW!
Eco-anxiety is a top-three concern for children and two-thirds of teachers say they feel ill-equipped to discuss climate change in the classroom.
WWW brings climate change to life for students and teachers through workshops, talks, direct contact with those who have personally witnessed climate change in the polar regions, and by supporting teachers to integrate climate change into their every day teaching.
WWW’s aim is to empower children, turning education into meaningful, reasoned, carbon-cutting action, and to support and signpost the wider school community – teachers, families, governors, and school managers – to do the same.
“The children very much enjoyed both sessions; there was a really lovely buzz around the school afterwards. You have helped inspire an army of 400 little people! And it wasn’t just the children that were inspired.”
Teacher, Purbrook Junior School, March 2021
Why focus on the Arctic?
Wicked Weather Watch was set up by Arctic explorer David Hempleman-Adams, who remains a trustee for WWW. David’s ambition has always been to help children understand the vast, fragile, beautiful land and seascape of the Arctic, and how climate change is already threatening this area of the world.
Over the past few decades, the annual average Arctic temperature has increased almost twice as fast as the rest of the world! This is important as ice melt in the Arctic impacts not only this polar region but the whole world.
We need your support!
Wicked Weather Watch urgently needs your support to help us expand on this year’s School Climate Action Programme.
We have been working with 15 schools across the South-West over the course of a year to help take these schools to the next level in taking action to combat climate change. In 2021/22, we will have brought a comprehensive package of climate change education to nearly 4,000 children and teachers, and our aim is to expand this to another 5 to 15 schools in 2022/23. Please help us to expand this programme by donating today.
Head over to our ‘Donate’ page, or contact WWW Director, Nikki Jones, at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss funding opportunities.
These are some pledges that have been made by students over the past year to reduce their carbon footprint.
Our work with schools
Our talks, workshops, events, and resources encourage and inspire students to learn and care about climate change through interactive activities, scientific experiments, music, dance, and more! We aim to turn eco-anxiety into empowerment through fun and hands-on learning about the Arctic, climate change, and sustainability. The price list of our services can be found here.
Our renowned, practical teacher training workshops support primary teachers to learn more about climate change and increase their confidence to teach it in the classroom. With networking opportunities, access to free resources, and advice and support from staff, we have everything you need to teach climate change with confidence!
Join us for one of our two courses:
- Climate Change 101 – An introduction to climate change
- Climate Change in the Classroom – How to bring climate change into the curriculum to teach with confidence.
WWW Membership is free and open to all pupils and educators. Signing up makes sure you can access all of our teaching resources here and ensures you are informed about our upcoming events.
