Climate change: take action

Everybody’s talking about climate change. What is it exactly? Watch this videoto know more.

There are many things you can do as an individual, such as saving energy or recycling, but there’s more to do.

According to Leonardo di Caprio, who is a fierce environmentalist activist, apart from an actor, ‘Climate change is not hysteria – it’s a fact’ and “this is not about just telling people to change their light bulbs or to buy a hybrid car. This disaster has grown BEYOND the choices that individuals make. This is now about our industries, and governments around the world taking decisive, large-scale action.”

This is what he said in a UN Climate Summit in . You can watch the whole speech in this video:

There are some students who are already taking action to demand their governments to do something about it. Read the following piece of news to find out.

“Young people across Europe have been skipping school to march in protest about climate change.

Teenagers and school kids are demanding that politicians take action before it is too late. We spoke to some young people in the Belgian capital Brussels about why they are protesting.

Their protest is inspired by 16-year-old Swedish student Greta, who performs a school strike every Friday to protest in front of the Swedish parliament.

Protests have been taking place since last week in many European cities and as far away as Australia.”

And there are many more young people fighting to save our planet. Here’s some more inspiration!

What would you do to stop climate change?

In groups, you’re going to think about the following questions:

  • How do your actions affect the environment?
  • How do changes in the environment then affect others?
  • Why should you care about recycling or sustainability

Then, you’re going to work on an oral presentation in class about this topic. See if you can become an environmental campaigner.

(Remember to use these oral presentation guidelines in your oral presentation).
