Inspiring teachers and pupils to act on climate change.
Coronavirus (COVID19): Our response
Free access to resources for all
Our hearts go out to all those affected by Coronavirus. It is a tough time for everyone and we are all having to adapt in ways we never expected.
While schools are closed to all but the children of key workers, we hope our resources will be useful for teachers and parents alike. These are freely available – just log in – so have fun learning about climate change and the Arctic!

Join our Stay At Home 14 Day Sustainability Challenge
As the lockdown continues, we know how hard it is to keep young ones entertained! So we’ve created a 14-day challenge that will not only provide a simple activity each day but also the chance to learn about nature and important environmental issues along the way!
Take a photo when you complete each challenge and tag us on Instagram @wickedweatherwatch to be featured and don’t forget to share with friends and family so you can join in together, wherever you are.
Everything you need to take part can be found here.
A team of six students from the University of Bath are giving their time and energy to raise funds for our work and raise our profile among new audiences.
On Saturday 18th July they will launch a social media ‘take-over’ campaign which will include stay-at-home and environmentally friendly activities for children and parents to engage with.
In an interview with WWW, the group said “Although physical activities are curtailed due to the pandemic, our effort to tackle climate change should not stop. Tackling climate change is a shared responsibility and we truly appreciate support for WWW in any form during our campaign, be it by engaging with our contents on social media or making a donation”.
See the latest updates from Project Melt at https://www.facebook.com/wickedweatherwatch/ and Instagram @wickedweatherwatch or contact email@example.com for more information.
Our events have been suspended during the Coronavirus crisis.
Not being able to be out and about delivering school workshops and teacher training on climate change is upsetting, but we are busy working out other ways to support teachers, pupils and parents by looking at new online resources, and even creating a virtual teacher training on climate change – watch this space!
Mental health during Covid-19
Many children and young people are feeling anxious at this time. Apart of Me is a brilliant, award-winning app that helps young people explore feelings of grief, loss and anxiety in a safe environment with others who have gone through the same experience.
Working with schools
WWW offers schools a unique way to teach about climate change by providing resources that meet cross-curricula requirements, as well as bringing the issue to life for students through direct contact with those who have witnessed climate change in the Arctic for themselves.
WWW’s schools programme strives to inspire students to care about climate change, the impact on our planet, and to engage in activities that will reduce our footprint on the Earth. Find out more on our schools page.
WWW is currently carrying out a strategic review of our work. We are running some CPD training workshops / inset days for teachers but are not taking new booking for schools workshops or visits at the moment. If you have any queries about our future work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
