Who are we?

Wicked Weather Watch is a charity that aims to provide clarity for children and young people about climate change and global warming. 

We want children to have access to unbiased information and hope to bring the important issues to life for both children and their teachers.  We will be sharing the personal experiences of Arctic explorers, such as David Hempleman-Adams (pictured left), looking at the latest science and information, and asking how climate change is affecting the people and wildlife of the Arctic and the rest of the world.

WWW was founded by Sir David Hempleman-Adams, KCVO, OBE, KStJ, DL, FRSGS, a renowned polar explorer and writer.  Sir David was the first person to complete the Adventurers Grand Slam, where he reached the North Pole, South Pole and climbed the highest peak of each of the seven continents. Sir David also led the Polar Ocean Challenge, which made history becoming the first British yacht to sail around the Arctic Ocean (anticlockwise) in one summer season.

We hear about global warming on the news, but it can be difficult for people to fully appreciate the threat until it directly impacts them. I’ve seen massive changes since 1982 when I first went to the Arctic. Our planet is ours to look after. Children think about this from a very early age, which is why Wicked Weather Watch is so important.
