Integrating Climate Change in Education and Activities
According to our EIB Climate Survey, Climate change is the greatest challenge of our times for a great majority of Europeans. And we fully understand how challenging it can be for teachers to digest this complex topic in order to be able to explain it clearly to children. It is also challenging to ensure we create hope rather than anxiety in the classroom.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) is at the forefront of the global effort to fight climate change, but everyone has a role to play, from international institutions, to governments, companies and individuals. The first step is awareness, which begins at the youngest age. This is why the EIB, the EU climate bank, has produced educational content intended for primary school students and their teachers, explaining simply and clearly what climate change is, what causes it and how it can be mitigated.
