Young Climate Authors Educator Training Program
We strongly believe that for children to engage with climate change and commit themselves to a lifetime of action, they need to see their voices recognized, affirmed, and amplified from an early age. The Young Climate Authors (YCA) is a book authoring program that teaches children how to write & publish storybooks on climate change for a global audience. Read the books written by past participants.
The educator training equips adults to implement the Young Climate Authors Program with children and youth. The 12-week, fully online course will cover:
Overview of Climate Change.
Research-based methods for teaching Climate Change.
Framework for climate change & climate justice teaching
Mentoring story-writing & illustration.
Teaching digital design and publishing.
Enabling children to develop climate action strategies
