Youth leadership has been powerful over recent weeks! Young people all around the world are unifying in a stance to inspire action against climate change. These thousands of individuals are standing together to show that they will not allow their future to be taken from them and current leadership needs to step up and address the facts and truth around climate change! We want to support and encourage the movement by not only commending all of these young leaders, but also by providing some ways to continue the lesson in the classroom!
There is a plethora of resources out there for teachers around environmental justice. This blog has the intention of simply placing some of those resources here for easy access. It is by no means an exhaustive list. So, please, add other resources, projects, or ideas that you have in the comments!
