There are so many ways students can make a difference. They can begin on the local level, studying their own school’s lighting, heating, cooling, food production and water use to find ways for schools to be sustainable. Students voices need to be heard because this is their future. 

Documentaries and Videos

“There is nothing more humanizing than short documentary films; they grab the heart, offer a window into the daily lives of real people, and allow students to see other cultures and places as populated by living, breathing human beings on a planet we need for our survival.” Jennifer Klein, Buck Institute

Podcasts

High quality podcasts can be informative and entertaining, capturing students’ attention and imagination. Podcasts can help students connect to issues on a personal level, hearing directly from people affected by climate change and from scientists conducting research.
