Young Climate Warriors

 

Young Climate Warriors has been set up by Transform Our World to empower children and enable them to engage with climate change action – at a collective level – without striking. By providing a forum whereby children can all undertake the same ‘suggested challenge’ each week alongside hundreds of others, they can be part of a collective response to climate change. With cumulative carbon emissions reductions.

A new challenge will be posted in the Eco-Schools 2020-21 Google Classroom every Friday. Pupils are encouraged to join this Classroom (ask your registration teacher for the code) and complete the challenge. Please note: these challenges are not compulsary but house points will be earned for showing evidence of having completed them.

 

24/9/21 - Recycling

This week's @YoungClimateWarriors challenge is Recycling. Why is it important to recycle? Your challenge this week is to make sure that everyone in your household recycles as much as they can. 

Remember, the challenge is added to the Eco-Schools 2021-22 Google Classroom (ask you registration teacher for the class code) every week. It's completely voluntary but you can earn house points and help the environment by submitting evidence of having completed them.

17/9/21 - Water

This week’s @YoungClimateWarriors challenge is Water. Around 450 million children already don’t have enough water to meet their everyday needs, climate change is exacerbating this situation. Reducing our water consumption can help combat climate change.

Your challenge this week is to try to reduce how much water you use. Can you take a shower instead of a bath? Can you switch the shower off while you shampoo your hair?

Remember, the challenge is added to the Eco-Schools 2021-22 Google Classroom (ask you registration teacher for the class code) every week. It's completely voluntary but you can earn house points and help the environment by submitting evidence of having completed them.

27/8/21 - Electricity

This week’s @YoungClimateWarriors challenge is Electricity. In the first three months of 2020 nearly half (47%) of our UK electricity came from renewable sources – solar, wind and bioenergy. This compares to only 2.6% in 2000. 

Your challenge this week is to calculate your household’s electricity consumption and see if you can reduce it.

27/8/21 - Spirals, Waves ... Stripes?

This week’s @YoungClimateWarriors challenge is Spirals, Waves … Stripes? Have you ever stopped to consider the beauty of a spiralling fern, hexagons in spiders webs, wave patterns on shells, fractals through a sliced cabbage, hearts joined to make clover leaves, perfect semi-circular rainbows, tessellations in dried cracked mud or teardrop shaped rose petals? Our planet is incredible!

Your challenge this week is to look closely and see how many shapes and patterns you can see in nature.

20/8/21 - Local, Seasonal Food

This week’s @YoungClimateWarriors challenge is Local Seasonal Food. How far have your fruit and vegetables travelled before landing on your plate? Have you ever stopped to think about where they come from? Have you ever wondered how they grow, what climate they grow in, in which season they are at their best? 

Your challenge this week is to work out the countries of origin of the fruit and vegetables you eat this week, and then ask your parent / carer if you could try to eat more local, seasonal produce. 

Remember, the challenge is added to the Eco-Schools 2021-22 Google Classroom (ask you registration teacher for the class code) every week. It's completely voluntary but you can earn house points and help the environment by submitting evidence of having completed them.
