Climate Action Education
How can we change people’s behavior towards climate protection? First, people need to know how their consumption impacts the climate. Focusing on energy issues in public forums also helps find a consensus. Respected community members set good examples. And adults have a hard time justifying their wasteful habits when well informed children confront them. Steps can be taken effectively within and outside con-ventional educational surroundings.
