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!

The 2020 Youth Climate Summit
The Youth Climate Summit is a week-long virtual event hosted by Global Action Plan on the teacher resource hub Transform Our World. The event aims to help tackle the climate and ecological emergency, with a hope to get every school in the UK discussing how they will be taking climate action. The Summit is scheduled to take place at the same time as the COP26 before it was cancelled for this year. This event allows the youth to take climate inaction into their own hands, all while displaying to world leaders how the climate emergency must be made a priority.
The Youth Climate Summit is a perfect opportunity to engage your school in the climate change dialogue. The event is hosting over 150 different events covering primary, secondary and CPD sessions.
Make sure you tune in on Monday the 9th of November and look out for a session with our wonderful patron, Professor Terry V Callaghan! He will be speaking about The Role of the Arctic in Climate Change. His sessions will be going live at 2pm for secondary students and 3:20pm for primary students. Book your place by following this link!
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.
After a strategic review of our work, we have been able to test conducting our workshops and CPD training virtually. We are now taking bookings for workshops, visits, CPD training and inset days both virtually and in-person. In-person events will be COVID dependent. If you have any queries about our future work or would like to book, please email email@example.com.
