Pledges from youth
“I believe that the integration of climate change in all spheres and segments of the educational system is of exceptional importance and significance for all of us. Instilling care for the environment and the world in young children who have not yet written the first pages of their life books (brains) – is a great thing because talking about this topic at a young age has a much greater value and result, ie a positive outcome. It is important to me because I, like everyone else, love, deserve, and have the right to a clean environment and better health! STOP GLOBAL WARMING! “
Climate change is the problem of our present and our future. A problem that our generation and the generations after us will have to solve. In order to be able to find an answer to a question one must have as much information as possible. Including climate change education in mainstream education will allow us to aquaintate us with the problem and start thinking about solutions. The more we are aware of the consequences of humanities rash behavior the more we will be able to minimize the ramifications of our ancestor’s actions. Actions not done out of evil, but out of ignorance.
When I was little almost nobody was educated about climate change. I do not wish to make the same mistake for the future generations because only if we act together, we can make a change.
I support environment and climate change education because I support changing our ways for the better of our community. I want my classmates and I to continuously have clean water, fresh air and an unpolluted environment – all the basics!
The youth are the most affected by the environment
The moment when my friends, classmates and contemporaries understand that every one of our actions has consequences on our Earth and our lives is the moment when I’ll be convinced that climate change education has been successfully implemented. Until then, I’ll give my all to make sure that that happens.
There is less and less greenery and more and more draughts. Less and less clean air, more and more pollution. Global warming is getting worse day by day and we need a quality climate change education in order to empower new generations to help the Earth to recover
“Education unlocks the essential doors needed to combat climate change and science has never been so abundant to meet the challenges we have. Even small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.”
Climate change education is necessary, because as part of this generation we need to educate and devote ourselves to improve the quality of life, to protect the environment and become aware that the future of the world is in our hands. I believe it is time to take an initiative because if we don’t “Our parents will die of old age while their children will die of climate change.”
It is time to become aware of the importance of protecting the planet Earth and from early age to contribute for its conservation. If we continue on the path, we are now we will inevitably reach an apocalyptic scenario cause by consequences of climate change. But I believe we still have the chance to protect the planet and we as part of it. We can achieve that by early education and answering the questions “What healthy and clean environment means for all of us? How to make it happen? How each of us can contribute? Because we all have the right to clean and healthy environment, but also a responsibility for it! It is the only way to succeed!
Pledges from teachers
“Climate change is the biggest problem today. Therefore, raising awareness among young students will contribute to responsible behavior and action both locally and globally to preserve the environment and climate change. “Only by acting together will we reach the desired goal.”
“Education is an important element in guiding students to think and act about a cleaner and greener environment, so that in the future when they grow up they will be conscientious people with high eco-awareness and caring for our home, planet Earth.”
“Preserving, protecting and improving the environment and the quality of life of citizens, all in order to enable sustainable growth and development.”
“I want the world to be Cappadocia, I want to fly with a balloon and collect smog particles with my own hands, to make an ecological investment in a magical way: to create greenery and cold from concrete and smoke!”
“I support education on climate change and environmental protection in order to improve and better educate young people about environmental protection and thus to educate which factors have the greatest impact on climate change.”
„Еcology is the future of planet Earth and all of us“
It’s time for action! Planet Earth has no time to wait!
Climate change is the most serious problem facing our planet. That is why urgent action is needed. What we missed should not be an obstacle for children, young people to contribute to environmental progress. Let’s help them!
