The earth is getting hotter. Glaciers are melting. Seas are rising. Climate change will affect us all.
So what can you do to help?
Could you switch off more lights? Use less water? Plant more trees?
You can make a difference!
Working with schools
Do you want to access up to the minute resources to teach about climate change and related topics? Or to hear directly from an explorer, scientist or those living in the Arctic?
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.
For more information about how your school can work with WWW visit our SCHOOLS PORTAL or download our SCHOOLS LEAFLET.

Calling all Key Stage 1 and 2 Coordinators, Geography/Humanities Subject Leads, Teachers, NQTs and trainee teachers!
Do you teach the topic ‘invaders/explorers’?
Would you like to meet/link up with a real-life explorer or scientist?
How might you teach about cold environments in a more cross-curricular way?
Are you keen to increase pupils’ awareness of the rising temperatures and shrinking ice within the Arctic, firm evidence that global warming is really happening?
If the answer to any of the above questions is ‘yes’ and you missed previous events, then why not come along to a Wicked Weather Watch CPD workshop?
The workshops aim to:
- ‘unpick’ National Curriculum Geography at Key Stages 1 and 2 and how teaching about climate change and sustainability fits in;
- showcase the WWW scheme of work and accompanying resources, including many cross-curricular links;
- provide the opportunity to network with teachers from other schools to share best practice;
- provide invaluable web-links and free resources, plus time to explore these and ask questions/seek advice.
Cost: £75 per person. Refreshments included. To book your place or find out more, email Vicky Oram-Ahern: firstname.lastname@example.org
