Join Our Community
The climate crisis needs more than laws and policies. It also needs human creativity and imagination. It needs all the diverse voices to inspire our desire for change.
Art helps children better understand complex topics. Teaching climate change in, with, and through art is an impactful tool for teachers to help children learn about this global issue, help them to see solutions, and express themselves.
Below are links to FREE lesson plans and our GLOBAL ART GALLERY to showcase the thoughts, hopes and fears of your students to the world.
Global Art Gallery
Every year, art is chosen from the Global Art Gallery to display at the UN CLIMATE CONFERENCE!
Your student could have their art on display at the world's largest global climate meeting!
