CLIMATE CHANGE DAY

Millwood school had their very own Climate Change Day on Wednesday 23rd February 2022.

The children at Millwood explored the climate emergency of human making.  The children were introduced to the crisis enabling them to think and act like good citizens. the children were supported as they challenged, debated and unlocked the most authentic and real of world issues. The children had amazing meaningful and memorable experiences enabling them to formulate and share a voice, choice, and action.

So we’ve all heard of it, but what is climate change and what is it doing to our planet?

Climate change (or global warming), is the process of our planet heating up.

Scientists estimate that since the Industrial Revolution, human activity has caused the Earth to warm by approximately 1°C. While that might not sound like much, it means big things for people and wildlife around the globe.

Unfortunately, rising temperatures don’t just mean that we’ll get nicer weather – if only! The changing climate will make our weather more extreme and unpredictable

As temperatures rise, some areas will get wetter and lots of animals (and humans!) could find they’re not able to adapt to their changing climate.
