The project: Climate Confident Teachers
As the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report has highlighted, climate change is one of the biggest issues facing our world, especially the next generation. So we’re raising funds to train and support at least 40 fantastic teachers we work with to be climate change champions in their schools, supporting their pupils to act on climate change, and to make our resources accessible nationwide!
Children love to learn about the wider world. They deserve to know about this critical issue and to have the opportunity and choice to act for their future.
The project will provide FREE training to at least 40 teachers, inspiring and equipping them to integrate climate change into everyday teaching, with learning that is fun, creative, informative and action-oriented for pupils. It will also enable us to make our teaching resources available nationwide.

What we want to raise:
In a nutshell, we’re aiming to raise £5,250. We’ve secured pledges of £2,625 already which are now in a ‘match pot’ for the project, and so during the Christmas Challenge week we are aiming to raise the other £2,625. As we have the pledges, all donations during the Christmas Challenge will be doubled, and even the smallest donation will make a big difference in helping us to reach our target. So if we can get a lot of people giving just £5 or £10, that will really help.
The Christmas Challenge takes place from 12pm (midday) Tues 27th November – 12pm Tues 4th December. Only donations made online during this week will count to be doubled.
