Young Climate Authors Educator Training Program


Young Climate Authors Educator Training Program

The 3 month, online training program equips environmental educators to teach children how to write storybooks on climate change.  The outcomes adhere to UN SDG 4 (Quality Education), SDG 13 (Climate Action) & SDG 17 (Partnerships for Goals).

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

Course Dates: January 7th–March 31st 2024.
